Four people have been nominated to support the key experts for the duration of the mission:
This organization has been very useful to meet all institutions to be met by the mission, and every activity was very well prepared. All assignments and meetings have been facilitated by the CBRN team to present the project, its aims and goals, and finally, after the presentations, clarifications and questions have been solved by the whole group, both experts and CBRN members.
In Ghana, falsified medicines are mainly dealt with through the National Security Council, and the fight against falsified medicines is included under the broader umbrella of anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism.
