Description

A recent World Health Organization report estimates that 1 in 10 medical products – including pills, vaccines, and diagnostic kits – circulating in low and middle-income countries are either substandard or falsified. This counterfeit issue is growing exponentially worldwide and impacts the U.S. health system as well.  In this second module of the Life Sciences Forum, explore the challenges and solutions – including identifying diversion/insertion points, following the API, examining import/export records, and harnessing social media information – to safeguarding the pharmaceutical supply chain.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss the worldwide problem of counterfeit and fake pharmaceuticals and devices
  • Identify strategies that address the intersection of cost, quality and outcomes in the pharmaceutical supply chain
  • Integrate best practices of replicable supply chain strategies that address the use of data analytics
