Africa is a continent rich in beauty, culture and natural resources but plagued with poverty, war, famine and disease. Lately, Africa has found itself ill-equipped to combat a new torment - counterfeit products. With so many problems to address, the temptation for Africans to find bargains in everything from drugs to electronics can be overwhelming. However, Africans are beginning to understand the scope of the counterfeiting problem, and calls for more rigorous enforcement is a good first step to helping fight counterfeiting in Africa.
