Abstract: The deadly implications of counterfeit medicines/drugs are well understood to be a central challenge to the integrity of public health systems around the globe, as well as a direct threat to our individual health and welfare. What is less understood is that the profits from this sinister crime are increasingly being co-opted by an array of organized criminal groups and terrorist entities as a means by which to fund their nefarious operations around the world. As such, counterfeit pharmaceuticals pose a direct threat to national and international security. The main aim of this research is to explore the role of procurement officers in preventing procurementof counterfeit medicines into our public hospital and the following specific objectives were identified to help attain the stated aim; 1. To identify procurement processes (of medicines) within Ghana Health Service. 2. To identify the role of procurement officer in the procurement of medicines. 3. To identify the tools procurement officers use to ensure that the medicines they procure are counterfeit free.
