A member of the Syrian Pharmacists Syndicate Council, Jihad Wadehi, revealed that a special schedule will be submitted to the Ministry of Health to re-examine the prices of regulated drugs, most of which are antibiotics.
Wadehi said that the prices of these drugs do not correspond to their production cost, and therefore some of these drugs are not available in the market.
He stressed that re-examining these drugs would be in the interest of the citizen so that he would not have to buy unlicensed drugs of unknown source at high prices.
Wadehi indicated in press statements that there was a proposal that included an amendment to the rural service and to consider the work of the pharmacist in any pharmacy, in any national pharmaceutical factory, or in medical expenses companies, and even those who study in private universities as rural service.
He pointed out that this proposal came as a result of the small number of rural areas and thus their failure to accommodate the large number of graduates, stressing that this proposal needs the approval of the Ministry of Health.
