The Philippines : Interim parliament president calls on Senate to create committee to investigate spread of fake medicines in the Philippines

The interim parliament president has introduced Senate Resolution 82 which directs the Senate Health and Demography committee to conduct an inquiry, in aid of legislation, on the proliferation of falsified medicines. The request follows the 2019 United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime report which notes that the country had the highest incidence of “falsified medicines” in South East Asia. The investigation may lead to amendments to current legislation.
