Jbara: The stock of medications, medications for chronic diseases, and infant formula will end in a few weeks

Head of Medications Importers Syndicate Karim Jbara confirmed, during a press conference that the stock of medications, medications for chronic diseases, and infant formula will end in a few weeks.

He added, during a press conference, “The situation of the pharmaceutical sector is in dire straits, and we cannot get out of it unless we import, but it is suspended because we need prior approval from the Health Ministry and the Central Bank, and most companies will not send medications unless we pay off accumulated debts, while the remaining stock is not subsidized”.
