Brazil, as a new supplier of fake medicines after China and India, mobilizes against this plague. This commitment is understandable by the fact that, according to the website “usine nouvelle”, 20 percent of medicines sold on the Brazilian market are counterfeits. The Oswaldo Cruz (Fiocruz) foundation, institution of Latin America established in the 1900s, under supervision of the Brazilian Ministry of Health, fights for a long time against this Public Health problem.
