Haiti - FLASH : More than 100 pharmacies operate illegally in 5 communes
Only 4 of the 104 pharmacies listed in 2016 in the communes of Croix-des-Bouquets, Thomazeau, Ganthier, Fonds-Verrette and Cornillon were authorized to operate by the Pharmacy Directorate of the Ministry of Public Health.

The sale of medicines in other pharmacies is of concern because there is no guarantee of quality, correct storage conditions (storage) and the sales of medicines under poor conditions (sometimes outdated, unknown, falsified or unauthorized), pose a significant risk to the health of populations.

The Frontier Cul-de-Sac Sanitary Unit (UCS), which coordinates the health sector in the aforementioned communes, want a better control of the Ministry and harmonization of rapid and effective interventions in the pharmaceutical sector.

With the support of Plan International Haiti, the UCS brought together the Directorate of Pharmacy of the Ministry of Public Health, the mayors and heads of health institutions of these communes to address the problem and to identify solutions and measures.
