Kenya : Kenya working on new track and trace system for medicines

The Pharmacy and Poisons Board (PPB) of Kenya says it is working on a track and trace system for medical products. PPB’s chief executive said recently that the system – which is being developed with the University of Nairobi – “will make it easy…to identify the country of origin, manufacturer and batch of medical products and health technologies.” Kenya already has several text message-based verification systems in use, which allow consumers to check the authenticity of medicines by sending a code on the pack to an SMS number, but these have been rolled out in a piecemeal fashion and only apply to certain products in the market.
