The National Drugs Service has begun the distribution of medicine and medical supplies across the country.
The activities which began in the first week of February will cover all Ministry of Health approved health facilities in all the 15 counties.
The distribution, according to a press release, is in fulfillment of Ministry of Health’s commitment to meet the Health needs of the Liberian people by supplying critical lifesaving drugs on a routine basis to key referral hospitals, health centers, clinics and other service delivery points.
With the dispatch to Bong, Lofa and Nimba, facilities such as Telewayon Hospital in Voinjama, Phebe and C B Dunbar Hospital in Bong as well as Ganta Medical in Nimba County are expected to be served immediately.
Despite the challenges, the NDS/CMS with the support of critical donor partners remain committed to building and supporting resilient healthcare system.
The Managing Director of the National Drug service NDS now the Central Medical Stores (CMS), Mr. Boakai Boley extends thanks and appreciation to President Dr. George Manneh Weah for the support when he toured the recently operationalized state of-the-art warehouse.
Mr. Boley also thanked those at the Ministry who are working tirelessly to ensure the availability of medicines to the public.
He lauded the effort of all donors and strategic partners whose invaluable contributions made these deliveries possible.
