The pharmaceutical industry has reportedly vowed to start protests on January 5, in an effort to put pressure on the federal government to address the issues the industry is facing.
The country today faces a significant pharmaceutical shortage as a result of the federal government’s foolish policy. On January 5, the pharmaceutical sector vowed to begin protesting because of their problems.
Details suggest that in addition to the market disappearance of insulin for diabetic patients a number of drugs for kidney and heart issues are also no longer available in pharmacies.
The Pakistan Drug Lawyer Forum’s President, Noor Meher told the media that although a fresh supply of medicines had arrived at the ports of Karachi and Lahore dry ports among other places around the country the authorities still hadn’t given them permission.
