Failed Medicine Scheme.

The NFP Leader, Hon Prof Biman Prasad responds to the ministerial statement by the Health Minister and states that the Free Medicine scheme is not not working.

The NFP Leader urged the Government to re-design this scheme by putting this Free Medicine funds aside and allowing the pharmacies to procure the listed medicines themselves, and claiming back from Government rather than the current wholesale procurement by the Government Pharmacist.

Hon Prof Biman said that hopefully this approach would reduce the bottlenecks and inefficiencies and improve the supply chain, and allowed private companies like pharmacists to get on with business.
