The Center for Pharmaceutical Advancement and Training (CePAT) in Ghana has just received a Minilab to aid in detection fake medicines. Minilab checks medicines for the correct active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and equips regulatory authorities with a portable and low-cost means of protecting patients from counterfeit drugs. Using Minilab, CePAT is able to test the quality of medicines in Ghana without necessarily returning to their lab.

CePAT, established by the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) in 2013 and GPHF-Minilab™, the Global Pharma Health Fund’s (GPHF) portable medicines testing kit, demonstrate the multi-stakeholder collaboration of Fight the Fakes’ partners and their continued commitment to fighting fake medicines.
