unstar this property answer text <p>The UK Government takes the issue of substandard and falsified medicines seriously and is committed to tackling malaria. Through DFID and the Department of Health and Social Care, we fund the WHO Global Surveillance and Monitoring System, which helps countries to identify and report substandard and falsified products, including anti-malaria medication in Africa.</p><p> </p><p>DFID also funds the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria, which is committed to responsible and sustainable procurement and investigates any reported cases of substandard and falsified medicines through its Office of the Inspector General. We support countries to strengthen their health systems and work closely with partners to raise awareness on good distribution practices to minimise the risk of these medicines entering the supply chain. Our support to Product Development Partnerships for research and development for new products also includes anti-counterfeiting measures to reduce the risk of substandard and falsified medicines entering the supply chain, for example using labels or packaging that are difficult to copy.</p>
