China is major producer of fake anti-malaria medications (warning)

Chinese-manufactured fake anti-malaria drugs are usually imported into Myanmar (Burma), Laos and Cambodia. Travellers who require anti-malaria medication should try to obtain approved drugs before travelling. If medication is required while travelling, travellers should attempt to obtain drugs that originate from approved manufacturing sources, excluding Chinese drugs.
