On October 12, 2017, 37 tons of outdated and prohibited products worth more than 50 million FCFA, or nearly USD90,000, were destroyed in the suburbs of Abidjan. The Ivorian government has set the goal of protecting the health of Ivorians and fighting fraud.


In the first three quarters of 2017, a total of 245 tons of unauthorized goods worth 275 million CFA francs (or nearly US$500,000) was seized and destroyed in the country; while in 2016, it was a total value of about 2 billion CFA Francs that was seized, or more than US$3.5 million.


Concerning falsified medicines, a seizure and destruction operation of prohibited medicines and stalls took place on 6 October in the market of the Adjamé forum, on the initiative of the Inter-Ministerial Committee against Illicit Trafficking and drug counterfeiting (COTRAMED).
