Gov't bans unauthorised sale of traditional medicine

The Standard: FEBRUARY 4, 2022

The Medicines Control Agency has banned the unauthorised importation, sale and distribution of nutritional supplements and herbal medicines in the country.

In a statement signed by its executive director, Markieu Janneh-Kaira and shared with The Standard, the agency said: “The general public is reminded that it is illegal for any person or entity to be engaged in the import, distribution, storage, sale, advertisement and promotion of medicines including nutritional supplements and herbal medicines in The Gambia without its approval. “Therefore, a person or entity shall not be engaged in the import, distribution, storage, sale, advertisement or promotion of medicines including nutritional supplements and herbal medicines to the general public as a treatment, preventive or cure for a disease, disorder or abnormal physical state unless authorised by the Medicines Control Agency,” the agency said.


The Medicines and Related Products Act 2014, the agency added, recognises that medicines “must not be treated as ordinary goods of commerce thereby placing specific restrictions on their manufacture, import, distribution, storage, sale and advertisement for the common good”.

“The peddling or sale of medicines at the markets, streets, ferry crossings, weekly markets (lumo) and other unauthorised places and, or by unauthorised persons is illegal and has the potential to negatively impact on public health,” the statement read.

The agency added: “The general public is hereby being advised and warned to desist from patronising such places and individuals for the interest of their own health. Media houses, individuals and entities who fail to abide by the law shall face the full strength of the law.”

Note the word unauthorised


The Police in Gambia are being tasked with many projects recently accident investigation vehicle examination,dangerous driving incidents and now this subject.

It maybe that if you wish to sell any of the products or services listed then A LICENCE could be bought after the product or service has been examined and passed as safe by The Medicines Control Agency
