The Global Fund and these national offices have agreed to share intelligence in order to facilitate the investigation of networks suspected of manufacturing and distributing fake medicines. As stated by the Director General of the Tanzania FDA, Hiiti Sillo: “Spurious, falsely-labelled, falsified, counterfeit drugs are silent murderers.”
