In the Philippines estimates vary from 8-30% of pharma products being fake. Fake drugs seen included cardiovascular, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, asthma, anti-infective, and anti-inflammatory medications. Many are smuggled too. Counterfeits are imported from India, China, Taiwan, and Pakistan mainly but also Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Colombia, Indonesia, Nepal and Myanmar. But the vast majority is from China and numerous examples of Chinese arrests during police and NBI raids are provided. Local production of fakes has also been reported too; from 2002–2005, there were 20 cases reported of fake manufacturing. A rise in raids through the early 2000s is alleged although more recently the Department of Health suggests there has been a decline.
In Indonesia the International Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Group (IPMG) estimates that 25 -40% of the pharmaceutical market is fake, increasing in the last 6 years. Common fake medicines include antimalarials, antibiotics, and analgesics. Examples of fake drug seizures provided by the Indonesian Drug and Food Control Agency (BPOM) include substandard amoxicillin and refilled syringes full of with water. The BPOM complains of weak law enforcement and corruption in the judicial system and lenient sentences for counterfeiters as part of the problem.
