This is a web application written using the Django framework for keeping track of people and companies that make untested, unproven, false or implausible claims about their health products.

This project is used in a live website,, that tracks the untested and false medical claims made by quacks in South Africa and the region.

The actual code here is quite straightforward. It is built using a simple content management system, django-pubman, also hosted in Launchpad.

Feel free to contribute to this project. It would be great to have more websites tracking quack sites across the world. We need all the help we can get to turn django-quackdown and django-pubman into good quality free and open source software.
