The World Health Organization (WHO) has demanded immediate action to stop the spread of tainted medications and infant cough syrup-related deaths.
To combat tainted drugs, the World Health Organization (WHO) has called for “rapid and comprehensive action.”
More than 300 children, mostly under the age of five, died of acute renal injury in Gambia, Indonesia, and Uzbekistan on Monday, according to a statement from the WHO.
The Philippines, Timor Leste, Senegal, and Cambodia may also be impacted because the drugs may be sold in those countries,
according to the UN health agency. Additionally, it urged its 194 member governments to take steps to stop such fatalities.
