PM: Work Underway to Relaunch Pharma Production

Prime Minister Wael al-Halki on Sunday claimed the government was working to relaunch production in the pharmaceutical industries sector, ensuring the availability of products in pharmacies and hospitals at affordable prices.

 

Chairing a meeting of the Medicine Affairs Committee, the prime minister stressed the need to abide by public sector health regulations for the procurement of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies, while exclusively importing medicine from friendly countries, calling for any organisation operating outside these regulations to be held accountable.

 

Halki also called for the cataloguing of pharmaceuticals required by relevant ministries into a database, emphasising the necessity to regulate medicine prices and ensuring supplies available in hospitals and pharmacies are of high quality.
