mPedigree is an innovative social enterprise anti-counterfeit ICT software application that enables the consumer to verify a medication’s safety. mPedigree uses a simple sticker on the packaging, which, when scratched with a fingernail or coin, reveals a numeric code that can be verified by SMS, providing a direct confirmation of the drug’s authenticity. mPedigree is a tool to secure the value chains of essential hygiene products (e.g., hand sanitizers, antiseptic, and soaps) to help citizens maintain good personal and home hygiene as a critical measure in the fight against COVID-19.
