Minister of Health issues urgent instructions to provide cancer medications
The Health Minister, Ali Al-Zinati, has given the green light to the Pharmacy Administration and the National Program on Cancer Control to import the countries' needs of chemo and radiotherapy, urging them to act with the utmost urgency.
"Our patients have the right to get the best medications from the best companies," the Health Minister said.
This came during his meeting with Laila Al-Arabi, Director of the Pharmacy, Equipment and Medical Supplies Department, and Hussein Kamuka, head of the National Program for Cancer Control.
He emphasized that the medication must be imported from major European countries, such as Germany, Britain, France, and the United States, which have the US Food and Drug Administration and IMO certification.
