DRUGS NEED TO BE AP­PROVED

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

More than 60 peo­ple were ar­rested in Au­gust for op­er­at­ing chemists and phar­ma­cies with­out li­cences. The Kenya Phar­macy and Poi­sons Board said most of them are not reg­is­tered and staff have no train­ing in han­dling drugs. Se­nior In­spec­tor for Drugs Julius Kalai said drugs and premises must be ap­proved and op­er­a­tors li­censed. Phar­ma­cies are re­quired to promi­nently dis­play a ban­ner with the Health min­istry’s safety code and seal of ap­proval. The code shows whether the phar­macy is prop­erly reg­is­tered.
