In Bangladesh pharmaceuticals business is considered as one of the booming business. This is one of the best sectors that we can proud of. Approximately 257 licensed manufacturers are operating their business where the total market size is 187,566 million, which is booming year to year. Bangladesh has acquired GDP growth rate of 7.11% and 7.28% correspondingly because of this pharmaceutical industry. The market share has been covered by most of the local pharmaceuticals. This data shows the positive, the alluring pictures of pharmaceutical business. But every coin has two sides. Fortunately, internship for GlaxoSmithKline pharmaceuticals industry assist me a lot to know about some facts about their working criteria, their responsibilities, their logistics, their supply as well as distribution. If you go through newspaper you can notice some news like in 2009, 24 children died of acute renal failure because of adulterated paracetamols made by a local medicines company. A Physician from Dhaka medical collage prescribed Betnovate ointment to Shahid Hossain from Munshigonj for his skin disease treatment. In it, symptom of that decease has become intensified. These sorts of news discovered that falsified medicines are spreading everywhere in Bangladesh which is harming general people like us. The research I have prepared on consumer feedback about purchasing drugs from pharmaceutical store. Upraising the awareness among consumers about counterfeit drugs. Testing of five thousand medicines by the government of Bangladesh revealed that three hundred were either falsified or substandard quality which has become a risky issue for people in this nation. There is a huge shortage of Lab expert in pharmacy store, reluctance of proof, reluctance of protest retail stores. People should be aware of buying medicines from stores, taking suggestions from experts from pharmacists when purchasing. This is all about I tried to demonstrate all the problems that we are facing.
