Calling for donor support amid shortage of medicines

Stocks of medicines in the government hospital system are running out on a daily basis and the Ministry of Health stated that the stocks of medicines in hospitals will be sufficient only for another two months.

The ongoing dollar crisis in the country has made it impossible to continue with the imports and the importation of medicines has been severely affected. Reports claim that even some of the essential medicines are in short supply.

In the backdrop, the Health Ministry is calling for donor support to address the crisis.

Meanwhile, the Government Medical Officers’ Forum (GMOF) has urged the Ministry to properly regularise the appeals made to the international community in receiving medical suppliants as a solution to the ongoing crisis in the government hospital sector, against what it claimed as a notorious attempt by certain unions to gain the authority of such a mission.
