Marrakesh meeting on falisfied medicines

The Brazzaville Foundation organised a meeting in Marrakesh (Morocco) on 12-14 June 2019 to discuss its future actions in the fight against the traffic in substandard and falsified
medicines in Africa.

Over 30 participants, including some of those who are in the front line in the fight against fake medicines, agreed on the need for legislation to criminalise this traffic, the imposition of stricter penalties and a new tougher approach to enforcement which ensures close collaboration between police and customs officials and Health, Interior and Justice Ministries.
