A number of Sheberghan residents complained of an increase in substandard medicines and preset prescriptions by physicians.
They stated that despite paying a lot of money for medicines, they are not effective and cause problems for patients. They called on authorities to pay attention to this issue and take practical measures.
Abdul Ghaffar Khoshiwal, Public Health Director in Jowzjan, said they had set up a health law observation unit within, which inspected pharmacies and wholesalers three times a week and collected low-quality, expired medications.
Khoshiwal added the unit was responsible for controlling health clinics in the city of Sheberghan, and if violators were identified, they would be dealt with legally.
According to health officials in Jowzjan, in the past three months, 3 tons of substandard and expired medicines, which included 128 items, were destroyed by provincial Public Health Department in the presence of representatives of relevant organs, and the process of gathering low-quality drugs will continue.
