Pharmacists Demand Investigation into Private Hospitals’ Medicine Sales

The Confederation of Moroccan Pharmacists’ Unions (CSPM) has strongly criticized the practice of private clinics selling and delivering medicines to patients beyond hospital premises. In a letter addressed to the Drugs and Pharmacy Department of the Ministry of Health, CSPM urged for an inquiry into these actions.

CSPM singled out Sheikh Zayed International University Hospital for allegedly breaching regulations outlined in law 17-04 governing medicines and pharmacy protocols. This law expressly prohibits the distribution of medicines or non-medicated products outside authorized pharmaceutical establishments.

Additionally, CSPM referenced Circular 485 issued by the Ministry of Health and Social Protection on May 25, 2023, emphasizing the importance of adhering strictly to legal drug distribution channels.

The confederation called for immediate action against these violations and urged for a thorough investigation into the matter.
