NEWSROOM (ADV) – Moroccan Health Minister Anas Dekali announced on Thursday (March 7th) that the ministry is monitoring the supply of medicines and medical supplies to the national market in order to facilitate its access to citizens in various regions of the Kingdom, according to media reports.

He added that the supplies are provided periodically, with the exception of some drugs for the treatment of cancer, which run out of stock at the international level.

For their part, pharmacists call for urgent solutions and measures to save the pharmaceutical sector, promote industrialization and local production, and end old medicines from India, China and Egypt, which have begun to concern even the government.

In recent months, Moroccans have sounded the alarm, publishing information on social networks, announcing the depletion of stocks of medicines and pharmacists, which called for the regulation of safety stocks and the right to replace.

Mounir Tadlawi, secretary-general of the National Union of Moroccan Pharmaceutical Trade Unions (FNSPM), said that it has been 3 months since there is no anticoagulant drug, and there is no pre-impression that the situation is recovering.

The interruption of some medicines in general is well known worldwide, including developed countries. In France, for example, more than 400 vital and essential drugs and more than 200,000 pharmacies have been banned. In Morocco, as in other countries of the world, there can be a disappearance of some medicines, which are mostly imported and in a monopolistic situation.
