Drug Diversion and International Fraud: Literature Review
Drug diversion as identified by the case study is the most common problem in the
pharmaceutical industry. Drug diversion is defined as the illegal distribution of regulated
pharmaceutical drugs from authorised sources to the illegal market and can be practised along
all points in the drug distribution chain from the manufacturing firm to small distributor,
wholesaler, patient and retail pharmacy (Kimberly, 2014). The United States teenage drug
misuse has been on the rise, and therefore this necessitates urgent priority in the establishing
the best practices for effective treatment and prevention in teenagers, also formulating the
policies to decrease diversion and abuse of drugs meant for medical purposes. Kimberly
(2014), asserts that control of drug diversion faces a double-edged problem. On one hand, the
drugs may be required for valid treatment. On the other hand, illegal activities may be caused
by the drug diversion. In this article Kimberly (2014) highlights how drug diversion is a
common phenomenon by the unscrupulous distributors of the drugs.
Computer Forensic Investigations on Drug Diversion and International Fraud
Kaye et al. (2014), highlighted the efforts by the Department of Health in Arkansas
which sought collaboration and aid in combating the drug diversion by the distributors and
unlicensed pharmacies to the patients. They sought mechanisms to make the drugs available
to patients through appropriate and legitimate channels. The case study highlights the
business problems apart from drug diversion such as reduction in the profits as a result of
illegitimate distributors exploiting their brand name for the profitable gains. The suspects
were involved in counterfeiting of the drugs by repackaging in it for sale; this mainly caused
a dip in the sales. In this article Kaye et al. (2014), agrees that the illegal drug diversion is a
nightmare and poses a danger for the survival of the business since the in the long term the

company might not be able to meet its obligation due to the market for the drug being
saturated by the counterfeit medicines.
The illicit drug diversion constitutes a pharmaceutical crime which involves the trade,
manufacture, and distribution of counterfeit drugs; hence the distributors in the study
committed a pharmaceutical crime. It involves the counterfeiting and fiddling of medical
products, repackaging and altering their documentation including international fraud,
diversion, trafficking, and illegal trafficking. According to Dobbin (2015), distribution, trade,
and manufacture of the illicit drugs have been on the rise in the recent past. The drugs being
diverted from the foreign country into the United States and sold to the small distributors and
retailers which amount to fraud. Globally, patients who are desperate for medical care take
the drugs oblivious of the fact that they may be consuming fake drugs and exposing their life
to risks.
In his article Pharmaceutical drug misuse in United States Dobbin (2015), further
notes that the pharmaceutical crime has been an avenue by the well-organized criminal
distributor's networks that are driven by a desire for profits through fraudulent means. They
operate internationally, and their activities include illegal drug diversion, manufacture of the
counterfeit, distribution of illegal medicines. Inter-agency collaboration globally is vital to
share intel on the suspects, and with a well-coordinated effort, they can prosecute the culprits
behind these crimes. This article gives a comprehensive view on the allegations leveled
against the distributors of the pharmaceutical drugs in the study.
Shapiro (2015), asserts that Governments across the world for decades have struggled
to ensure the accessibility of narcotic analgesics for legal scientific and medical purposes and
at the same time dealing with illegal diversion and regulating the abuse of such medicines.
While the drug-control system internationally has efficiently limited illegal trafficking of

opioids, concerns remain about its efficiency in ensuring the accessibility of these drugs is for
ultimate purposes. Shapiro (2015), agrees that although the government has tried to deal with
this menace more needs to be done in terms of ensuring legitimate use of these drugs. This
article helps to understand the role of the government in terms of regulating the industry. The
discussion about heroin addiction in 2002 was a significant challenge because of the balance
on how to minimize diversion to the black market while making treatment available and
accessible.
Computer forensic refers to gathering, storage, examination and presentation of
evidence of a computer that can be useful in solving criminal cases (Johnson, 2015). Globally
