Congressional Briefing: The Human Impact of Counterfeit Drugs
As the recent seizure of more than 8,000 counterfeit pills labeled as “harmless generic medicine” at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport demonstrates, Americans are not immune from the dangers of counterfeit drugs. This is a global public health threat that is gaining increasing national attention from the media (60 Minutes, CNN) and policy experts.
