  • Developing a successful brand protection strategy Developing a successful brand protection strategy Joel Stobart, CTO of Brand Custodian, and Jeff Moore, Operations Director at AAL Recorded: Feb 22 2017 50 mins
    Counterfeit medicines cause an estimated 170,000 deaths a year, with the WHO estimating more than 120,000 people a year die in Africa as a result of fake anti-malarial drugs. This is also having an incredibly harmful impact on the brands and companies who are being imitated.
