This Medical Product Alert relates to several confirmed falsified chloroquine products circulating in the WHO regions of Africa and Europe. New reports of falsified chloroquine which have been validated by WHO are included in this update.

Between 31 March and 14 April 2020, the WHO global surveillance and monitoring system on substandard and falsified (SF) medical products received 14 reports of confirmed falsified chloroquine products from 5 countries: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, France, and Niger. All reported products were identified at patient level and all have been confirmed as falsified.

Widespread vigilance is required from all countries, regardless of where the product was originally identified.
