Bad medicine in Bangaladesh

Author: Marya Lieberman

The Daily Star newspaper in Bangaladesh reports on a post-market analysis of over 4,800 samples of medicines by the National Drug Quality testing lab. 499 enforcement actions were opened and 20 people were sent to jail for offenses related to making or selling substandard or falsified drugs.  

Good work by the lab, and particularly good to see enforcement follow-up.
