 Global Security engages in aggressive anti-counterfeiting
program to detect and disrupt major manufacturers and
distributors of counterfeit Pfizer products.
 Regional teams, many with law enforcement experience, have
expertise in case development and critical contacts in law
enforcement communities.
 By forging effective partnerships with enforcement authorities
throughout the world, Global Security has taken steps to disrupt
and dismantle the manufacture and distribution of those
products.

ONLINE SALES & SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
 Sellers target emerging markets using social media as a
vehicle for sale rather than OLPs because of its
popularity
 Facebook, blogs and Instagram are the preferred
platforms for sale
 Recidivist sellers continue to create postings and profiles
despite their initial removal because of lax enforcement
policies

RESPONSE TO OLP & SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS
 GS employs consultants to monitor a number of
disparate platforms to determine if certain prescription
medicines are offered for sale
 Consultants report findings directly to platforms and also
monitor for recidivist sellers for reporting as well
 Over 2,000 profiles and blogs offering Pfizer medicines
without a prescription have been removed (majority
being Cytotec)
