The Deputy Minister for Health, Dr Mrs Gladys Ashitey, yesterday called on health professionals and licensed medicine retailers not to play on the ignorance of clients and sell counterfeit and expired drugs to them.

She said they should not compromise the health of Ghanaians by dealing in unprofessional acts that can undermine the health of their clients.
Speaking at a stakeholder forum organised by the Food and Drugs Board (FDB) on Global Partnership for Safe Medicines in Accra, she noted that safe medicines should not be a privilege but a necessity for all Ghanaians.
