The Worldwide Pharmaceutical Supply Chain, from raw materials to final products on the shelf, continues to face threats as a result of counterfeiting, adulteration, theft, and diversion which reduce the safety and efficacy of the drugs in the consumer’s medicine cabinet. The severity of the problem was shown when at least 81 people died in 2008 as a result of purposely adulterated Heparin from a plant in China.
This hard-hitting panel will discuss what these risks to the supply chain are, the severity of the problem, and steps being taken as a result of recent legislation, by regulators and industry to mitigate these risks. This panel will feature senior leaders from pharma and biotech procurement, and will be directly aimed at Suppliers from the perspective of these professionals. The panel will focus on the issues of most concern to senior procurement professionals, specifically as it relates to their vendors, and how the activities of Rx-360 and active involvement in the organization by both pharma companies and their suppliers can mitigate these risks. The Rx-360 consortium will be described and its activities will be discussed by the panel.
The session will be interactive and provide opportunities for the audience to become involved and to ask questions.
