Patronise only FDA approved herbal products for your own safety – FDA PRO

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Evans Ndenyun has advised Ghanaians to patronise herbal drugs approved by the authority for their own safety.

According to him, the FDA only approve products which are of the highest quality, efficacious and safe.

He said the FDA has been keen on regulations because 60 to 70% of Ghanaians now depend on herbal medicine for their private health needs.

“Regulation plays a pivotal role, to ensure the safety, efficacy, and quality of products. In the context of herbal medicines, is crucial for promoting public health, ensuring product quality. The FDA’s guidelines on the registration of herbal medicinal products ensure that before a herbal medicine is given marketing authorization (registration) it has to meet quality, safety and efficacy requirements…,” he said.
