UN: About 11 percent of drugs in poor countries are fake

Residents of the Kisenso district receive yellow fever vaccines, in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo. The World Health Organization says that about 11 percent of medicines in developing countries are fake – and potentially responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of children from diseases like malaria and pneumonia. In the U.N. health agency’s first attempt to assess the problem, experts reviewed 100 papers, involving more than 48,000 medicines.
