Letter to the Government of India

India’s responsible action against fake malaria drugs

To: Dr Manmohan Singh, Honourable Prime Minister of India

Date

Dear Dr Singh,

India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and widely known for its hard working people, technical development, cultural heritage.

Unfortunately a dark shadow is casted over the international reputation of your country caused by the illegal mass production and export of fake malaria drugs from India to Africa. Wouldn’t you agree that such criminal practices are entirely out of place in a modern nation that has so much to offer to the rest of the world?

We therefore call upon the Government of your country to stop the criminals that produce and export fake malaria drugs to Africa.

Malaria drugs should save lives, not destroy them. At this moment, 1/3 of all malaria drugs sold in Africa are fake and kill hundreds of innocent children every day.

We count on your swift action and are looking forward to tell the world that the Indian Government acted responsibly so that millions of lives will be saved.

Yours sincerely,

(Your name, city, country)
