NMA Seeks Ban On Herbal Products Adverts

NMA Seeks Ban On Herbal Products Adverts

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has called for ban of herbal products advertisement not certified by regulatory agencies as a way of discouraging distributions and sales of fake drugs in the country.

NMA President, Dr. Osahon Enabulele, made this known while presenting a paper entitled “Effective leadership in eradicating fake and unwholesome drugs”, during the public presentation of a book, “Modern approach to food and drugs administration and control: NAFDAC success story,” written by Ms. Christabel Julie Okoye.

Enabulele also called for stiffer sanctions and blacklisting of companies involved in drug counterfeiting.

He said, “The menace of fake and unwholesome drugs and food products has remained a global concern since it first got global recognition at the World Health Organization Conference of Experts on Rational Drug use held in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1985.
