UNGA 2018: Concrete examples of fighting fake medicines in Africa


The fight against substandard and falsified medical products in Africa was brought to the highest levels last Wednesday, 26 September, at an UN General Assembly High-Level side event in New York. Organized by the Republic of Benin and the Republic of Zambia, as well as the African Union Commission and the World Health Organisation, the event showcased best examples of how to eliminate fake medicines.  Entitled “The fight for quality medicines in Africa – stopping falsified, substandard medicines” the event was an important opportunity to share also guidance for future actions with strong political will.

Fight the Fakes partners Fondation Chirac and the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA) attended the meeting to contribute to a forward-looking discussion about stopping falsified and substandard medicines.
