Estimated at over 50 billion Euros per year, the trafficking of counterfeit medicines is an extremely lucrative market for criminal organizations. According to recent studies, the trade in counterfeit medicine represents 5-10% of the total global pharmaceutical market. In addition, 50-90% of all medicine purchasedfrom internet sources are spurious or fake.
Pharmaceutical products are easier to counterfeit than other typically faked goods; the trade in faked medicines potentially affects vast numbers of consumers, unlike other illegal products such as narcotics or illicit drugs. Since everyone consumes medicines at one time or another, each person is a potential victim of counterfeit medicines. In addition to the economic issues raised by the transnational trade in illegal, counterfeit medicines, this criminal activity threatens people’s health, often with devastating consequences. The victims are particularly vulnerable due to their disease: patients consuming counterfeit medicines are under the false illusion that they are being treated for their malady. In reality, they are consuming ineffective preparations that are often toxic and sometimes fatal. While enforcing laws regarding counterfeit medicines is essential, increasing public awareness of the problem is imperative.
Many actors on the international stage are moving toward increasing communications with policy makers and citizens about the dangers of counterfeit and substandard medicines, notably in Southeast Asia.
The Pharmacide Arts is a tool to increase general public awareness about the problem of counterfeit medicines. This exhibition has two primary objectives: to highlight the work of national artists and their perception of the problem, and to raise awareness and stimulate reflection and discussion on the subject of fake medicines.
Four key messages emerge from the paintings in this exhibition:
– Purchase your medicines from a registered pharmacy;
– Selling fake medicines is a crime;
– Trafficking in counterfeit medicines generates profits at the expense of your health;
– Always store your medicines in appropriate conditions (recommended temperatures, noting expiration dates.
The exhibition represents works of art by 34 artists from Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. As a travelling exhibition, the art will be shown in each of the represented countries in Southeast Asia, as well as travelling to France.
The initial Pharmacide Arts was held in Phnom Penh in June and July, 2010 and was organized by Meta House, US Pharmacopeia and The Cecil and Hilda Lewis Charitable Trust. The current travelling exhibition is sponsored and organized by the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (FSP Mekong and Regional Delegation of the Embassy of France in Thailand), the German Cultural Center, Meta House, in Phnom Penh (funded by the Goethe Institute) and the Soho Films International Company, in partnership with the French Institutes in Southeast Asia.
