Gizo residents concerned with drug shortage



GIZO residents are concerned at the current medicine crisis afflicting Honiara and other hospitals and clinics around the country.

A Mr Andrew Koke says the drug shortage will affect patients.

“These shortages will greatly affect patient treatment options at the hospitals, mini-hospitals, and clinics, especially rural populace.”

“We are calling on responsible Ministry and the National Government to deal with drug shortages.”

In response, Dr Boara said Gizo Hospital and other mini hospitals and clinics only attend to in-patients admitted at the Hospital and emergency cases.

He said that currently the number of in-patients at the Gizo hospital is manageable.

He said the Ministry will soon sort out these issues regarding the drug shortages currently affecting the country.
