Madagascar: Illicit Sale of Drugs On the Rise

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Madagascar, Governance, Health

Baovola Rajaosafara, president of the National Committee to Fight against the Illicit Sale of Drugs ( CNLCMIM in French),  declares that it is too costly and inefficient to arrest illegal sellers of drugs and that they will strive to increase awareness in the general population instead [1] [fr]. Purchasing drugs at illicit selling points is on the rise because the majority of the population cannot afford the current selling prices at pharmacies and hospitals.
