Cambodia: Fighting counterfeit medicines with TV spots and Minilabs

The US Agency for International Development (USAID) and United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) launched a series of public service announcements on counterfeit medicines in Phnom Penh last week. First broadcast on national television in Cambodia subsequent translations into other languages will help also to spread the word throughout all countries of the Greater Mekong region. As the proliferation of counterfeit and substandard quality medicines cannot be stopped and monitored easily “we will continue to support the Minilabs in the provinces and the main lab in the national capital of Phnom Penh” said Flynn Fuller, USAID Cambodia Mission director during the premiere event in Phnom Penh’s META House.
