No drugs in hospitals

Good morning Watchdog, I would like you to bring to light the shortage of drugs in most if not all government hospitals and clinics. Specifically Roan general hospital. The institution has essential drugs such as Panadol, metformin, Nifedipine to name just a few. Patients are given (5)five tablets of panadol which is not sufficient to relieve pain for a day. As watchdog can do a random check in gov’t clinics or hospitals for verification. Thank you

    I see no one cares about by brethren out there far like Malambo where they are suffering due to non availability of basic medicenes coz we can buy them instead.

    Let Ministry of Health inform us on the progress with the Stop gap contract of health Centre kits given to our own medical giants like Pharmanova, and Indian giant Artemis and small companies like Honeybee.
    This measure was taken to avoid this shortage after the fall out with the previous supplier Mission pharma.

    Tell us, we deserve to know.

    Can someone ask Ministry of Health to elaborate on the situation being reported.
    It is really a sad situation especially for our brethren in far flung areas who can not even go and buy the prescribed drugs.
    Government is failing them big time and they are voiceless.
