I know a lot of you might have to buy Anti-malaria drugs this yuletide. Oya here is a quick information.
There is a fake coartem on in market. Coartem is a brand of Anti-malaria drugs containing Artemether and Lumefatrine used in the treatment of malaria. It’s produced by NOVARTIS.

How To know that the coartem you bought is original is very simple, look out for the spelling of novartis on the packet of the drug. In the fake one it’s spelt as “NOVRTS” as against “NOVARTIS”.
Please don’t forget to inform your friends. Always procure your medications from a Pharmacy. Your pharmacist is your partner in health.
