Abstract

The present situation in the sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia due to malaria is gruesome. The mortality due to malaria is very high. The higher rate of casualties is not because of poor treatment or lack of facilities rather it is due to substandard antimalarial drugs. The huge market of counterfeit drugs supplying the fake antimalarial drugs, particularly artisunate is flourishing. The wide availability of such fake drugs has resulted in panic and fear. Several studies reported the problem of fake antimalarial drugs in the past. A number of radical steps to curb this problem have been taken yet the results are far from acceptable. In this paper authors discuss the issue of fake antimalarial drug Artesunate and suggest methods to control the same.
