Pharmacy Association goes public with a list of bad decisions in health system

Danini Contreras

The Pharmacy Association of Belize was outraged and went public when the post of Director of Drug Inspectorate was created and Danini Contreras, the daughter of Minister Contreras, was appointed to it even though she does not qualify. Since then, the association has been speaking out on a myriad of decisions taken in Ministry of Health that have been negatively impacting the health system. Today, the association issued a bulletin on a list of actions taken by M.O.H. that is weakening the system, but now their resolve. The chronological list looks like this: the removal of the Chief Pharmacist from tendering and procurement of pharmaceutical process; the suspension of the Licensing exam required by Law and the cancellation of regularly scheduled exams. There is also the lack of support by M.O.H. for the acquisition of a Mini-lab; the suspension of National Formulary, the issuance of Chemist and Druggist Certificate to individual not deemed competent to practice under the Laws of Belize and the recent contracting of an unlicensed, inexperienced and untrained individual as Director of Drug Inspectorate.
