A research by the Kenya Association of Pharmaceutical Industry (KAPI) and the University of Nairobi’s (UoN) School of Pharmacy has revealed that Kenya is at risk from unregulated drugs.

According to the findings of the research, Kenyans could be taking stale or counterfeit medicines.

The findings indicated that up to eight per cent of medicines bought over the counter in pharmacies are unregulated meaning that consumers could be taking drugs that have not been tested and cleared by the regulators, therefore worsening the risk for patients.
