Fake Foreign Drugs Detected in VN

The Viet Nam Drug Administration (VDA) has detected and suspended the trade of over 60 fake medicines since early this year, 80 per cent of which have come from abroad.

The fake medicines violate numerous drug regulations and standards with false VDA content declarations, bacterial contaminations, inconsistent dissolutions of medicines, incorrect weights and textures of drugs as well as improper mixing of eastern and western medicines.
 
The problem of fake medicine is currently a controversial issue for the country’s pharmaceutical sector.
