Government committed to keeping drug supplies national competence

The government is committed to ensuring that the supply of medicines to the public remain a national competence, as well as ensuring pharmacists' professional and existential independence, the prime ministerial commissioner for social policy and the president of the Hungarian Chamber of Pharmacists (MGYK) said in a joint statement on Wednesday.

Commissioner Zsolt Nyitrai and MGYK head Zoltan Hanko met to discuss the future of the pharmaceutical sector.

The government thanked the dedicated work of Hungary’s 17,000 pharmacists and pharmaceutical assistants during the coronavirus pandemic, and their commitment to formulating and enforcing hygienic regulations, according to the statement.

“The country’s pharmacists and MGYK have been a strategic partner of the government since 2010. At the talks, we agreed that concluding a new strategic agreement is one of the most important future tasks,” the statement said.
