By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Health is alerting the public on the identification of products that are being sold as medicines but not officially recognized and registered by the Ministry of Health.
Two recent inspections resulted in the identification and subsequent confiscation of these types of products and other related supplies from peddlers/street vendors.
The Ministry further advises that peddling of medicines is illegal.
The products being sold by the street vendors pose a health risk as these may be falsified, substandard and/or unregistered medicines that are sold by non-professionals.
The public is encouraged to visit only licensed pharmacies that have registered pharmacists providing pharmaceutical service to the community.
Find the list of pharmacies below:
Persons can also report any suspicious medicine to the Drug Inspectorate Unit in Belmopan at 828-4489 or send an email to [email protected]
