Breaks my heart.
Counterfeit drugs are a growing scourge around the world. They’re generating millions of dollars in revenue for organized crime and fueling the rise of drug-resistant parasites.
Anti-malarials are among the most popular drugs to fake. But these faux pharmaceuticals are particularly dangerous because malaria can kill a person in a matter of days.

Rains Threaten to Worsen Already Dire Situation for More Than 100,000 Refugees in South Sudan
In Maban County, rains slowed the planned relocation of approximately 12,000 refugees from a transit site known as “KM18” to the Jamam transit camp and then onwards to Batil camp. “They need to get down to Jamam before the roads get completely closed with the rain,” said MSF health advisor Lauren Cooney. Resources—water in particular—are stretched extremely thin in all locations, but KM18 is of particular concern because its water supply is dwindling faster than refugees can be relocated. Doctors Without Borders is assisting refugees in several locations in the area and is finalizing the establishment of its third field hospital in the camps—this one in Batil—in the coming days.
