Minister of Health disseminates list of subsidized drugs

Caretaker Health Minister Hamad Hassan announced in a press conference held at the Ministry a plan that includes a list of subsidized drugs for chronic and incurable diseases, infant formula, vaccines, and mental and neurological diseases.

Hassan also announced that the unsubsidized drugs are products that cost less than 12,000 LBP and can be ensured through primary health care centers. He explained that the lists of subsidized and unsubsidized drugs will be published today on the Ministry’s website.

The Minister said: “In light of the scarcity at the Central Bank, we launched this plan to avoid a crisis that would affect all Lebanese.”
