Letter to the Government of China

China’s responsible action against fake malaria drugs

Mr Xi Jinpinggh, Honourable Prime Minister of China


Dear Dr Jinpinggh,

China is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It is known for its hard working people, technical development, cultural heritage, a.o.

The illegal mass production and export of fake malaria drugs from China to Africa, casts a dark shadow over the international reputation of your country. Wouldn’t you agree that in such a beautiful, modern nation that has so much to offer to the world, these criminal practices are entirely out of place?

We therefor call upon the Government of China to stop the criminals that produce and export fake malaria drugs to Africa.

1/3 of all malaria drugs sold in Africa are fake and kill hundreds of innocent children every day. During the past year, 250.000 children have lost their lives due to fake malaria drugs. The production and trade of these illegal killer drugs has to stop. Malaria drugs should save lives, not destroy them.

We count on your swift action. We would like to tell the world that the Chinese Government acted responsibly so that millions of lives will be saved.

Yours sincerely,

(Your name, city, country)
