Liberia: High Risk Zone for Fake Drugs - Pharmacy Under Scrutiny

 

By Bettie Johnson

Monrovia — One of Liberia's leading pharmacies, Abeer Pharmacy has been ranked the top pharmacy that imports and sells fake drugs in the country. Mr. David Sumo, head of the Liberia Medicine and Health Products regulatory authority, explains that the pharmacy usually brings in anti-malaria pills, such as lonart, quinine and pain killers. He added that Abeer Pharmacy has repeatedly failed to abide by the standard of the regulatory agency.

"I know most of you will be surprised to hear this, the pharmacy has failed our test many times, and we've put this particular pharmacy in the high-risk zone," Mr. Sumo said. He advised people dealing in fake drugs to desist and called on everyone, especially those who have mini-drug stores to look at the expiration date properly before purchasing the drugs.
