Posted by Robyn, March 3, 2013

Global Pharma Health Fund (GPHF) Tuesday donated a compact mobile laboratory for identifying counterfeit medicines to the Ghanaian Ministry of Health. It was the 500th lab that the GPHF, a charitable initiative financed by Merck has provided to public and private health services in developing countries since 1998.

  ”Counterfeit medicines pose a serious threat to health globally, , here in Ghana as well,” said Dr. Opuni. “In Ghana, 21 Minilabs are already being used, and each additional Minilab makes a valuable contribution to quality control of medicines.”
