Don’t Be Your Own Killer

15 10 2010

If you want to die, be stuck in a coma, be a terminal diabetic, be in need of a liver, etc… go ahead buy from an online pharmacy!

Recently INTERPOL released some anti-counterfeit adds for a campaign. I first saw this when I was looking at the Partnership for Safe Medicines website.  On their main page they had a youtube video titled “Chad’s story – Fake Blood Pressure Pills”. It is truly a sad story. There are 4  INTERPOL campaign videos.

To see more campaign videos, please click HERE and go towards bottom of page.

Quick FACTS:

  • WHO estimates that 50% of medicines available from pharmaceutical websites are counterfeit (Website where they conceal their physical address).
  • WHO estimates that up to 1% of medicines available in the developed world are likely to be fake.  On the global scale it rises to 10% and in some areas of Asia, Africa, and Latin America this figure can rise up to 30%.
