Strategic Alliance Formed in Ghana to Fight Fake Medicines

U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) |

The Global Pharma Health Fund (GPHF) and the Centre for Pharmaceutical Advancement and Training (CePAT) of Ghana, a facility established by the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP), have formed an alliance in the fight against fake medicines. The partnership aims to build local capacities in pharmaceutical quality assurance and control.

Dr. Stephen K. Opuni, CEO of the Ghana Food and Drugs Authority, has stated he regards CePAT as “one of the most important initiatives to ever be implemented in this part of the world, as it goes deep into the root problem of the lack of quality medicines in Africa.” With the use of GPHF Minilab®, GPHF and CePAT make progress towards their common vision of safe and high quality medicines for all citizens.
