An audit report for the 2012 financial year revealed that district governments in Sindh bought medicines that were not verified by the central or provincial drug laboratories.

A notification issued in 2006 by the health department of Sindh stated that no medicine could be purchased without obtaining a drug test report from the provincial and federal drug testing laboratories.

Despite the notification, 23 districts in Sindh bought the uncertified medicines, putting the lives of patients in danger.
