JOHESU and intn’l best practice
An international best practice is the hackneyed phrase introduced into our health sector by JOHESU in their inordinate quest to take over the leadership of the health sector. It is only in Nigeria where the chain of drug distribution is in the hands of non-pharmacists. Go to our open drug markets and see the few number of pharmacists there.
To them, international best practices are not required in that area. What a self deceit. If pharmacists are busy usurping the roles of the medical doctors, what conscience will they have to ask the patent medicine dealers, the herbalist or the pharmacy technicians to do the right thing? It is said that he who wants equity must come with clean hands.
Tell them let international best practices guide their practices, they will say no but the only place they want international best practices to be entrenched is taking over leadership of our health sector.
