The Minister of Public Health Firas Abiad explained that the process of pharmaceutical imports between importers and the Central Bank was achieved through automation under the supervision and follow-up of the Ministry, which will accelerate the import process.

Abiad announced that to ensure transparent communication between the ministry and patients, especially those with cancer and incurable diseases, the Ministry publishes two detailed schedules of the medicines that entered the country in recent days and are expected to arrive in the near future.
