Global Traffic in Counterfeit Drugs

Unknown - 2008
Rate this:
Although the counterfeit drug trade impacts the global community, it remains cloaked in secrecy. This program documents every stage of international counterfeit drug traffic, from production to end-user purchase. Michel Koutouzis, a United Nations expert on the subject, begins his investigation in Mumbai, where factories and wholesalers produce fake pharmaceuticals. Koutouzis then follows the sea routes taken by the counterfeiters across the Indian Ocean. On the island nation of Mauritius he studies transactions between traders. In Zanzibar, he observes the drugs being put aboard Arab dhows and then disseminated along the Tanzanian and Kenyan coasts. The final stop? Cities and villages full of vulnerable African patients.
