The Chamber of Pharmacy, Ghana (CoPG) has halted the supply of drugs to hospitals over the delayed NHIS payments.
CoPG in a statement announce the decision and said it will request payment guarantees before supplying any more medicines to hospitals that require their services.
Meanwhile, the Chamber is pleading with the government to return to the decentralised procurement process through national competitive tenders.
It has, however, expressed its commitment to provide quality and easy access to medicines at affordable prices for effective and improved health delivery.
“The Chamber will like to remind the government and all stakeholders that, we will ensure that good-quality health commodities are available, accessible, and affordable to all people living in Ghana and anchored by a sustainable, reliable, responsive, efficient, and well-coordinated supply chain.”
