Importers react to new system for drug importation

first_imgNew Pharmaceutical importation system– foresee adverse effect on businessFollowing the introduction of the new measure whereby a regional hub will now recommend approval for pharmaceuticals to be imported into Guyana, local importers had mixed reactions to the new system with many of them decrying the move, saying that it will “adversely” affect their business.The new arrangement – which was signed on to by Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence since early March and announced by Head of the Government Analyst-Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD) Marlan Cole on Tuesday at a public meeting with local importers – will see the Caribbean Regulatory System (CRS), a regional regulatory body under the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), vetting and recommending pharmaceuticals to be imported into Guyana.Mike’s Pharmacy’s Lakeram “Mike” SinghAccording to Cole, previously suppliers would submit dossiers to local regulatory bodies for review and approval of the drugs they wanted to sell on the market, but with the new system in place, suppliers will now have to make electronic submissions to the CRS for it to do an assessment of the drug. He added that the CRS would then make recommendations to the GA-FDD as to whether that drug should be registered locally based on certification from either a World Health Organisation (WHO) prequalified site or the particular medicine’s marketing authorisation issued in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Argentina, Cuba or Mexico.However, local importers are up in arms over the move, claiming that it would more favour large foreign companies, such as ANSA McAL. In fact, this newspaper was told that this new measure will now mean that the majority of generic medicines – from India, China and Brazil particularly – will now be banned from entering Guyana. This means the ordinary citizens would have to incur additional expenses since only costly “brand-name” medicines will be permitted into the country.When contacted on Wednesday, Mike’s Pharmacy Chairman Lakeram “Mike” Singh related that while he was not present at Tuesday’s meeting, he had a representative there and based on what was relayed to him, the new system “looks detrimental in the long run”.Nevertheless, this publication spoke with the company’s Pharmacist, Radha Rooplall, who attended the meeting and she explained that one of their regular suppliers is an Indian company and with this new regulation, there are new criteria to obtain marketing authorisation.“So that (new) criteria now makes it difficult for us to register our products from the Indian company, because it’s from India and we would now have to check to see if (those products and the Indian company) would meet those criteria,” she stated.Another issue that Rooplall pointed out they now face is the uncertainty of approval for shipments of pharmaceuticals that are already on the way from those companies. She indicated that this issue was raised at the meeting, and they were told that the marketing authorisation for some of those registered products would have to be reviewed.“Remember we have been bringing in products from this company for many years, and we have already marketing authorisation for some of the products, so they are saying we can recall that and review it… So, I don’t know what will be the future in terms of importing drugs from India, but we would have to wait and see,” the pharmacist asserted.Moreover, Rooplall went on to say that Cole had indicated to them during Tuesday’s meeting that the CRS would only be accepting drugs that were coming from the ABC countries, which would obviously be more expensive.“So, we would have to work with whatever they are approving… If they don’t give us approval to ship those generic drugs from India, then probably we will have to seek alternatives,” she noted.Meanwhile, MediCare Pharmacy Managing Director Aneesa Bacchus told this newspaper that her company would not be directly affected by the new system since it bought its supplies locally. However, she added that there would be a transferred effect if their suppliers (other local importers) were affected.“We’re a retailer, so we wouldn’t be directly affected, but if the importers are adversely affected by this new measure, then we will also be in at the end. And customers will be affected at the end too,” she stated.Company favouredMeanwhile, Former Health Minister, Dr Leslie Ramsammy, in a letter to the press, has pointed out that by design this new policy benefits Ansa McAl since this Trinidadian-based company represents several branded drug companies selling their products at exorbitant prices, which was publicly exposed in the recent Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) sole-sourcing fiasco.Dr Ramsammy pointed out that not registering a generic medicine in America does not automatically mean that these medicines are inferior. “For many non-US, non-Canada, non-UK generic companies, the high cost of meeting the barrage of ever changing import barriers designed to protect American, Canadian, British pharmaceutical companies make marketing low-cost medicines in those markets uneconomical.”He added that it is noteworthy that citizens from America, Canada, the UK, Europe and other countries travel to India to procure medicines because they cannot afford to purchase these medicines in their own countries.The Caricom Ministerial Body for Health gave its approval to implement the CARPHA CRS programme in 2014. A few Caricom countries including Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago have refused to be part of this progrmme.last_img read more

First phase of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women inquiry launched

first_imgJustice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, alongside Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett and Status of Women Minister Patty Hajdu, announced today the first phase of the inquiry into the deaths of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in Canada.Wilson-Raybould says the government will be consulting with the families of victims over the next two months, so they know how the inquiry should be designed and what this inquiry needs to accomplish.While she says ‘no inquiry can undo what has happened,’ this first phase will help find a way forward because Canada ‘can and must do better.’- Advertisement -When asked if racism and sexism have played a role in this issue, Bennett said they are ‘hugely involved.’“We need to hear those stories, so that Canadians understand, really, that racism and sexism in this country kills,” Bennett told reporters.The former Conservative government famously dismissed an inquiry, but interim leader of the Official Opposition, Rona Ambrose, has come to support an inquiry.Advertisement “We are very pleased to have the leader of the official opposition on side now, with the work that we have to do all together,” Bennett added.This is aimed to be the first of two phases, but Bennett says the inquiry will have as many as it takes to get it right.Since this announcement, Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation John Rustad, and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton have issued a statement together about the inquiry, saying ‘our government has been clear that we support a national inquiry.’B.C. has made significant changes coming out of the missing women’s inquiry, greatly improving safety for vulnerable women in our province.Advertisement In addition, we have provided compensation to the children of the victims, vastly improved police communications, established new police standards for bias-free policing, and established a robust provincial response for missing persons, including new missing persons legislation.We have also made our northern highways safer, helping to improve cell coverage on Highway 16 by almost 50%.This statement added that the work done covers the major themes recommended by Commissioner Wally Oppal, QC.last_img read more

United’s comeback delays City’s title party

first_img0Shares0000Chris Smalling completed an incredible United comeback to win 3-2.© AFP Ben STANSALLMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 7 – Paul Pogba spoiled Manchester City’s anticipated Premier League title party by scoring twice in two minutes as Manchester United came from 2-0 down to win a thrilling derby 3-2 on Saturday.Chris Smalling completed the comeback that looked so improbable when City were well on course to round off a resounding march towards the title by racing into a 2-0 first-half lead. Goals from captain Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan put the hosts in a commanding position, who were left to rue huge missed chances from Raheem Sterling to extend their lead.City manager Pep Guardiola added more spice to an already hotly-anticipated clash when he claimed on Friday he had been offered the chance to buy Pogba two months ago by the player’s agent Mino Raiola.Pogba has endured a desperately disappointing season having often been dropped by Jose Mourinho for United’s biggest games.But after so much criticism, Pogba showed why he was the world’s most expensive player when United splashed out £89 million to bring him back to the club from Juventus in 2016 by hauling United back into a game that looked lost at half-time.Guardiola kept his pre-match promise to prioritise Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Liverpool with City needing to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit.Kevin de Bruyne, a leading candidate for player of the year awards, was left on the bench alongside Gabriel Jesus and City’s all-time top goalscorer Sergio Aguero.Guardiola and Mourinho have a long-running rivalry dating back to their time in charge of Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.Can you hear me?: Paul Pogba celebrates his two goals as United battled back to stun Man City 3-2© AFP Paul ELLISAnd the game quickly settled into the usual pattern when the two face off with City dominating possession and United happy to get plenty of men behind the ball.Yet, for all City’s possession, just like when City won 2-1 at Old Trafford in December, it was from a set-piece that United were undone.City’s Abu-Dhabi owners have splashed an estimated 878 million euros over the past decade to assemble a squad that has tilted the balance of power in Manchester from red to blue.Kompany was one the Emiratis’ first purchases, and he was a fitting scorer on what seemed destined to be a historic day.The Belgian outmuscled Smalling to power home Leroy Sane’s corner on 25 minutes.Five minutes later City doubled their lead in a style that has characterised their season as Gundogan brilliantly turned onto Sterling’s pass before slotting into the far corner.City should have been out of sight by half-time as Guardiola screamed in frustration after Sterling fired two glorious chances well over the bar.Unlike in many big games this season, Mourinho played Pogba in his favoured role on the left of a midfield three.Like the rest of his teammates, Pogba was overrun in the first 45 minutes, but came alive to slot home from Ander Herrera’s cushioned pass with his chest to get United back into the game eight minutes after the break.That goal was the first Mourinho’s men had scored away from home against top-five opposition in the Premier League all season.And they soon had two in two minutes when Alexis Sanchez picked out Pogba’s late run into the box and his header beat Ederson low to his right-hand side.City’s Champions League hopes were likely ended by conceding three times in 19 minutes at Anfield in midweek.And United took just 16 minutes to complete an incredible turnaround when Smalling capitalised on some slack City marking to turn home Sanchez’s free-kick.Guardiola threw on Aguero, Jesus and De Bruyne in an attempt to prevent just a second league defeat of the season.And City should have had a penalty when Ashley Young somehow escaped without punishment from a knee-high lunge on Aguero inside the area that sparked an bad-tempered finale.Aguero was denied by a brilliant De Gea save two minutes from time and Sterling then hit the post as United somehow held on for  famous win.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Arsene Wenger says Arsenal will have money to spend in the summer

first_img Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger 1 Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will have money to spend in the summer – but reminded Arsenal fans that will not help this year’s title bid one bit.Reports have suggested that Wenger will be given as much as £75m to spend when the window opens amid reports that a new striker is high on his wish list.And the Frenchman says the club will not be short of cash this summer should they wish to strengthen the squad.He said: “I think if we want to buy at the end of the season, money will be available.“But the money before the end of the season will not help us.”Reports have also suggested that talented duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are also close to agreeing new contracts in north London.However, Wenger said: “No, that’s not close.”last_img read more

‘Steve Bruce to replace Jose Mourinho at Man United?’ – Amazing talkSPORT view

first_img Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland Man United transfer news live: Haaland ‘wants a change’, two players off in January deals Below you can see the hilarious exchange Durham and Goughie had on the prospects of Bruce becoming Mourinho’s successor.Goughie: He knows the club, he’s a fan of the club and if he went to Manchester United and you gave it to him until the end of the season I don’t think you’d get many United fans going ‘oh not him!’Durham: Hang on. This is Manchester United we’re talking about.Goughie: Yeah; we’re talking not a rushed decision so they should get somebody in who knows the club, get him in until the end of the season to make sure they go through all the right processes to get the right manager in.Durham: When you say ‘he knows the club’, Bruce hasn’t been there for decades.Goughie: Oh, but he knows it!Durham: He knows it, what does that even mean? Can anyone who played 20 years get it? Will appointing Steve Bruce give United a chance of winning the Champions League or competing for the Premier League title?Goughie: No.Durham: Well what’s the point of appointing him then?!Goughie: Because he knows everything about Manchester United and he can do his best till the end of the season. It doesn’t mean he’ll get the job full-time. It just means Manchester United, rather than rushing, can get everything they want in a manager and take their time in getting the right man for the job. Because if now they get rid of Mourinho and get a manager in three days, is that not a rush?Durham: I’m just bewildered. Am I dreaming? Are we actually talking about Steve Bruce to Man United? 🗣 @DGoughie: “He goes in and tries to do his best until the summer…”😳 @talkSPORTDrive: “You’re actually talking about Steve Bruce to #MUFC?”What do you think #MUFC fans? 👀 pic.twitter.com/cKo2FNyuDQ— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) October 3, 2018 Goughie believes Bruce could be a good option to manage United until the end of the season should Mourinho leave Mourinho’s status as Manchester United manager could be hanging by a thread gameday cracker 2 silverware talkSPORT’s Darren Gough believes Steve Bruce should be a candidate to succeed Jose Mourinho as Manchester United boss, should the Portuguese from the club in the near future.Mourinho has been under increasing pressure due to the Red Devils’ poor start to the season – their most recent disappointment a 0-0 draw at home to Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday.

OISIN McCONVILLE: McGUINNESS IS WRONG OVER INJURY CLAIMS

first_imgARMAGH GAA star and media pundit Oisin McConville has disagreed with Donegal manager Jim McGuinness over the Glenties man’s claims about serious injuries to his players.Speaking to RTE Radio One, McConville said he believed injuries suffered by Mark McHugh in the clash with Monaghan was an accident.He responded to comments by both Karl Lacey and Jim McGuinness on the affair. “There will always be players who will be targeted and dished out a bit of treatment,” said McConville.“If Colm McFadden had have been taken out of the game (by Laois) then Donegal would simply not have won the game.“Laois didn’t do that, they didn’t take him out…ok he was given some treatment, he was hit hard and he was tackled hard. Most players get plenty of protection from the referee.”McConville instead said McGuinness had made the comments because he was under pressure. “The cupboard is a little bit bare,” said the Armagh man.“Jim McGuinness could be using this for a siege mentality; rally the troops, you know, everybody is against us. We’re here on our own.“I can’t blame him for doing that. He is going to do whatever he can to hold onto the All-Ireland title but they are struggling.” OISIN McCONVILLE: McGUINNESS IS WRONG OVER INJURY CLAIMS was last modified: July 29th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
