Online Brand Protection for Pharmaceuticals

The global counterfeit trade in pharmaceuticals is estimated to be over $200 billion annually. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 1 million deaths are caused every year through the sale of counterfeit drugs. A significant share of counterfeit pharmaceuticals emanates from online sales, on marketplaces, social media platforms and standalone rogue pharmacy websites.

Consumers may be motivated to purchase counterfeit medicines through these methods due to apparent convenience, scarcity of the medication, the lack of a requirement for a prescription, or a price difference from the original product. According to an Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) report, consumers have demonstrated a willingness to take risks buying products online, sometimes disregarding the consequences of purchasing and using products that may not be properly formulated.
