The Pharmacists Syndicate announced, on Sunday, the preparation of a bill called the "drug dollar", with the aim of restoring drug prices to what they were before raising the exchange rate of the US dollar.
The second deputy of the Pharmacists Syndicate, Amjad Haseeb, said in a statement to the official newspaper, followed by Nass, (March 21, 2021) that “The Syndicate prepared the (Medicinal Dollar) project and it was handed over by the Pharmacists Syndicate to the Prime Minister and Minister of Health,” indicating that “the union did not happen until Now I have a clear answer or support for what was mentioned in this project. "
He added that "the process of importing medicines is subject to the process of the exchange rate of the dollar circulating in the market," noting that "this bill obliges banks to make the exchange or transfer process into dollars for licensed pharmaceutical offices, according to the previous price without any increase."
Haseeb added, "Medicines importing offices can sell drugs to pharmacies within the framework of the previous pricing, and bind them to specific prices within the national system without the increase in the types of drugs, which amounted to 20 to 25 percent."
