Pharmaceutical crime

Pharmaceutical crime involves the manufacture, trade and distribution of fake, stolen or illicit medicines and medical devices. These products pose a major threat to public health as counterfeit medicines can be harmful or even fatal. At INTERPOL we are working to dismantle the international organized criminal networks behind this type of crime.
