The Ethiopian Food and Drug Authority (EFDA) has developed an application named “I Verify” that swiftly assesses whether pharmaceuticals or food items have the required validation time and have been distributed legally or illegally.

i-Verify, a health product tracking app, gives regulators and the general public real-time visibility into the flow of health commodities and products from the maker to the point of issue.

Anyone can use this program to check the validity of a product at any stage in the supply chain, and it allows you to track and trace health commodities from manufacturer to point of the issue – all the way through the health import process and supply chain. It is also used to report illegal, defective, or counterfeit products on the market.

In a media interview, Tinsaye Genene, a member of the GSIDHA team, explained that the program allows buyers and importers to detect whether a drug or food item was purchased legally or illegally, as well as calculate the validity period and import permit dates.

She also noted that customers might use their phones to report to the inspection team by using the “I verify” feature. “Customers can use the app to take a picture and send it directly to the EFDA inspection team if they come across incorrect validation times on commodities, whether it’s medication or food,” she explained.
