MOMBASA - Counterfeit and substandard drugs are believed to kill thousands of people annually. The trade of substandard or falsified medicines has grown to a $30 billion black market industry. Experts warn that the number of counterfeit or substandard goods entering Africa is on the rise. Kenya, with its international Port of Mombasa on the Indian Ocean, is one of the epicenters. What’s more, public health facilities in Kenya are often expensive, inefficient, and sometimes prone to stock-outs.
