But the FDA in a statement signed by its Chief Executive Officer, Hudu Mogtari noted that the Authority is yet to authorise any medicine of that kind.

The FDA is the only agency responsible for the approval and granting of market authorization for the manufacture, importation, distribution and sale of medicines in Ghana.

“Any person who claims to have medicine for the cure of HIV/AIDS would need prior approval from the FDA before marketing such product."

"It is worth noting that before any approval is given; the medicine is taken through a vigorous scientific scrutiny of its content, packaging information and documentation to ensure that the medicine is efficacious, quality and safe for consumption,” the statement read.

It added, “The FDA wishes to state categorically that it has not approved any medicine for the cure of HIV/AIDS and therefore the general public is advised not to patronise any medicine for such claim since their safety, quality and efficacy cannot be guaranteed.”

The FDA has therefore urged individuals on the Anti-Retroviral Medications not to allow themselves to be swayed by the recent report but rather continue with their medications.

Persons with information on individuals whose activities endangers public health and the safety should report to the FDA through the following contacts: 0244337235, 0299802932 or 0299802933.
