The Head of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) in charge of Bono East, Bono and Ahafo regions, Mad. Akua Amponsah Owusu has hinted that very soon her outfit in collaboration with State security agencies will go after people practicing or selling herbal medicines without registration or licensing.
According to her, the FDA has embarked on a lot of education and sensitization which gives an opportunity for everyone who genuinely wants to practice traditional healing to pass through the right channel, therefore anyone caught flouting the regulations will be made to face the full rigors of the laws of Ghana.
Mad. Akua Amponsah Owusu made this disclosure in an interview with Asta Fm’s Nana Kwadwo Adu of Asta Fm during a training workshop for herbal or traditional healers in the Techiman North and South.
Some executives of the Ghana National Association of Traditional Healers on behalf of their members expressed gratitude to the FDA for the training.
