GAC welcomes seizure of fake condoms
The Ghana AIDS Commission has welcomed the move by the Food and Drugs Authority to arrest a company involved in importing 113 million fake condoms into the country.

Speaking to Radio Ghana on what the Commission makes of the situation the Policy Director at the Commission, Dr Joseph Amusu however expressed the fear that condom use among sexually active persons may come with some reservation.

Dr Amusu said the Commission has over the years embarked on massive national campaign for people to use condoms, but it is likely that it may back fire with the seizure of fake condoms.

Meanwhile, the Regulatory and Control Unit of the Food and Drugs Authority is investigating another case of sub standard products imported into the country.

This time it is fake condoms which were smuggled into the market and were tried by users.

A member of the Regulatory Team, Issaka Collinson-Cofie described the situation as serious and called on importers to follow laid down procedures when bringing things into the country.

Mr Collinson-Cofie said the Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health need to collaborate effectively with the Food and Drugs Authority to check fake drug imports into the country.
