Crackdown on fake medicines
The Ministry of Health has closed 114 pharmacies and filed 58 new lawsuits against laboratories, importers and others in the illegal drugs business since April 2015.
Public Health Minister Altagracia Guzman Marcelino and the team that makes up the General Department of Food, Medicines and Sanitary Products (DIGEMAPS) said that there were strict controls over the production and sale of medicines to prevent the population being harmed by fake or expired medications.
She said the number of inspectors had been tripled to crack down on the illicit practices.
