(Business in Cameroon) - In a message dated April 1, 2019, the Managing Director of Customs at the Cameroonian finance department, Fongod Edwin Nuvaga (photo), called for “maximum vigilance” by customs officials at the country's borders, particularly with regard to shipments of imported medicines and pharmaceutical products.

This “red alert” is reportedly linked to information from the World Health Organization on the circulation of fake meningitis vaccines in some West African countries.

Also, in addition to trade and customs documents, the MD instructs its border officials to systematically check the import authorizations of all importers of medicines and pharmaceutical products entering Cameroonian territory.
