Malaysia : Health Ministry cracks down on illicit online medicine sales

The Health Ministry has issued thousands of notices to e-commerce platforms to demand the removal of links advertising illegal pharmaceutical products. Since 2016, nearly 6,000 such notices have been sent out. The owners of the platforms were given two weeks to comply with the demand and most of them did. The Ministry said it contacted the providers of Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms to ask them to remove advertisements offering medical products that violate Malaysian law.
