Counterfeiting in the pharmaceutical industry has a world-wide impact on the general population’s health. Cypheme offers a high-tech anti-counterfeit solution designed to prevent the expansion of this world-wide problem.

Counterfeiting in pharmaceuticals

Due to high added value and growing global demand, counterfeiting is rampant in the pharmaceutical industry. Fraud is perpetrated in many forms, from the simple infringement of intellectual property, to the sale of generic products under a different names, to the reuse of packaging or the manufacturing of counterfeit packaging designed to sell faulty or totally different products from those indicated.

It is estimated that over 30% of medicines sold on the African continent are counterfeit. These malpractices not only represent a considerable loss of revenue for the industry, they also cause a loss of confidence in health care providers and systems, and this has dramatic consequences on public health.
