Scarcity of hepatitis C, renal failure drugs in markets


KARACHI JULY 20 (TNS): Pakistan Pharmaceutical Manufac­turers’ Association has urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to immediately sign summaries sent to him by the Drug Pricing Committee as critically ill patients of renal failure and hepatitis C have been suffering badly owing to what they call his indecision.

There is now a shortage of some 100 important medicines across the country, it said.

Dr Kaiser Waheed, the central chairman of PPMA, flanked by key office-holders, told that a few months ago a delegation of the PPMA met President Mamnoon Hussain and urged him to play his role. “These matters should have been dealt with by the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (Drap) without sending them to PM House,” the President said.
