Abstract

Falsified medicines are again in the news, this time in a piece for the BBC News’ websites business section. In his article, Matthew Wall looks at the problem of combating falsified, counterfeit and substandard anti-malarial medicines in Africa through the use of alternative technologies for tracking the identity of the medicines’ original pack – the original pack being the box of 14 or 28 tablets received for the patient.
