(India-Africa) India’s Healthcare Diplomacy with Africa reflects Southern Solidarity (fonte: Vivekananda International Foundation)

Samir Bhattacharya:

The tiny African nation Gambia has recently been in the news due to the unfortunate deaths of 70 children from July to September, reportedly connected to four paediatric cough syrups made in India. In September, Gambia’s Government opened an investigation into the deaths of children. And in October, WHO (World Health Organization) Director-General Tedros announced that the spate of child fatalities in Gambia was caused by four contaminated cough and cold syrups produced by an Indian company Maiden Pharmaceuticals. In addition, the WHO also issued a warning and forced the Gambian Government to remove Maiden Pharma’s pharmaceuticals from the market.
