In a ceremony attended by a host of government officials, the fastest blockchain platform Fantom and the Afghanistan Ministry of Health jointly announced the successful trial of Fantom products and the official rollout of the National Medical Importation Security Initiative. Built on the blockchain-powered Fantom Tracker product, this anti-counterfeit pharmaceutical initiative responds to a critical need in Afghanistan for proven tools to identify illegal and fraudulent medicines.
Fantom Tracker integrates the Nigeria-based Chekkit Technologies’ scanning and verification tools with Fantom’s Opera blockchain. Immutable and blazingly fast, Opera secures manufacturer and supply-chain data and communicates it to users and consumers scanning Chekkit’s tamper-proof labels.
In an initial pilot phase, Fantom products were rigorously tested in Afghanistan by partners:
@ – Royal Star Pharma: Afghanistan’s largest importer and distributor of medical goods
@ – Bliss GVS Pharma: A large, publicly-traded medical goods manufacturer based in Mumbai, India
@ – Nabros Pharma: A privately held, India-based manufacturer of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals
