PSN TELLS GOVT TO ENCOURAGE LOCAL DRUG PRODUCTION

Uploaded by on April 22, 2020


The Lagos State Chapter of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria has urged the federal and state governments to make drugs available to Nigerians and build the capacity of its members.
In a statement, the state Chairman of PSN, Mr Gbolagade Iyiola, said it was commendable that health workers continue to put in their best despite the oddities of a weak health system.
The Association expressed dissatisfaction that the majority of the industrialised nations had suspended the exportation of drugs and medical consumables to preserve what they produced for their local population which had led to an increase in the prices of essential medicines and consumables in the country.
The PSN also urged government at all levels to invest significantly in Primary Healthcare with emphasis on preventive therapy through the maximum engagement of Environmental Health Officers.
