Pharmacy Council warns against sale of unlicensed medicines. Stay informed on public health and safety.

The Pharmacy Council of Ghana has issued a stern warning to those involved in selling or distributing illegal substances, urging them to stop immediately.

This warning comes after a collaborative operation involving the Council, the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), and the Ghana Police Service led to the arrest and confiscation of illegal substances at the Accra Mall.

Dr. Daniel Amaning Danquah, Acting Registrar of the Pharmacy Council, emphasized the harmful effects of these substances on public health and stated that the Criminal Investigation Department is investigating the matter.

“They are possessing and marketing medicine and it is illegal if you are not authorised to possess and market medicines.

“They are not supposed to do so, but at that function, almost all the people who were designated and were offering medicines for sale were not licensed and neither their companies were licensed so that was a breach of the law.

“In addition to that, all the products they were offering, were not registered. Intended use of these medicines was also very detrimental to the health of the user and the nation as a whole.”
