Haiti : Three pregnant women die in maternity ward after taking potentially fake medicines

Three pregnant women died in the same week after having undergone surgery at Isaïe Jeanty in Chancerelles. One of the doctors reported that: “suspicious, and most probably fake, medicine was found in the victims’ hands” after their death. One of the suspicious products, AMD (Alfa Methyldopa), is “an anti-hypertensive which is often used for pregnant women suffering from pre-eclampsia”. The doctor also stated that: “these medicines were out of stock at that particular moment in the maternity hospital’s pharmacy, as it was being reorganized”.
