I would add that the $1 million-plus targeted towards Africa, the poorest
region in the world, is especially problematic.

1) Africa - Western Regional Workshops $182,000
Training for West African customs authorities on methods to identify and
seize infringing goods.
2) Africa - Sub-Saharan Regional Workshops $525,920
Workshops for Sub-Saharan African law enforcement partners focusing on
border enforcement, following the money trail, organized crime involvement
in trafficking of counterfeit medicines, and gathering electronic evidence.
3) Africa - East Central Regional Workshops $255,936
Regional training for East African law enforcement authorities in
combating counterfeit medicines which threaten human health and safety.
