The Foundation for Improving Pharmaceutical Outcomes in Liberia continues to address the ongoing problem of substandard and falsified medical products and their consequences. We are aware that these products cause significant threats to health, increased disease prevalence, loss of public confidence in healthcare professionals and health systems, among many negating factors.

The pharmacists are well positioned to identify these problem products and must have the knowledge to identify and be empowered to report these products to the requisite regulatory institution. Our institutions must be enabled to remove these substandard and falsified products from our healthcare system and communities.

In our communities or cities, the sale of medicinal products is done openly at markets, street corners and at unregulated locations. The altered medical product has a substantial negative impact on public health. These suspected substandard or falsified products can lead to

serious adverse reactions or no therapeutic response. These products have significant socioeconomic and economic impacts including increased out-of-pocket spending, lost productivity, lost income and increased poverty.

The challenge out there goes to every individual of the community but the specialist (Pharmacist) have got to set the pace. The public-private drive to get you involve will serve as an accelerator in getting community members improve the decision of supporting the non-standard unregulated market in the community you serve.

FIPOL is carrying on a volunteer/member drive to strengthen public and the private sector effort of protecting our communities from unsafe medication use.
