Embossing scheme on trial to deal with fake drugs in Ghana

Joy Online notes that a new technology that allows consumers to detect counterfeit drugs is currently on trial in Ghana. Mpedigree Network, supported by the African Development Corporation (ADC) based in Boston in the United States of America, are spearheading the trial, which involves embossing special codes on to genuine products; at the point of purchase, consumers scratch a panel to reveal the code number and then send it via SMS number 1393 to any of the networks to find out whether the product was fake.
