AS the drugs shortage crisis deepens, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services has provided further details on the steps it has taken to address the situation.

Permanent Secretary Tenneth Dalipada yesterday provided the table below which gives an overview and status of drugs replenishment between now and 2019.

In response to questions put to him by Island Sun, Dr Dalipada said some emergency drugs have already arrived in Honiara and are being cleared over the next two days

  1. The status of replenishments of our drugs and supplies with effect of today, Sunday 15 July 2018 are as follows:

 

Date Contract Awarded to Supplier  

Description

 

Delivery ETA

Status

 

Comments

 

April 2018

 

Interim Order

10 months drugs and supplies.

4 suppliers

 

Supplies being

sent progressively since end of June

 

Some supplies will arrive by end of July

Total 10 months supplies will be in the country by August / September.

Once in the country, the supply will cater for the period up to June 2019.

The 2019 supplies are anticipated to be in the country by April / May 2019.

 

7 May 2018

 

Critical drugs, dressings and consumables

3 suppliers.

To cover shortfalls in the period leading up to receipt of Interim Oder (‘10 months’ supply)

 

All supplies

airfreighted and now in the

Country. The final stocks will be cleared from the wharf in the next two days.

 

This supply mostly addresses NRH’s needs.

 

We still require an emergency stock up for the country

 

 

 

31 May

2018

 

 

 

Essential drugs, dressings and consumables

4 Suppliers

 

 

 

All these drugs and supplies will arrive in August.

 

 

 

These supplies do not duplicate other orders and are on schedule.

 

4 June 2018

 

Emergency Drugs, dressings and consumables

6 Suppliers

 

Orders have

already been

sent to each of the 6 suppliers.

 

Airfreight products will be ready for

shipment within 2 weeks.

 

Sea-freight will be within 2-3 months.

 

This is the most urgent to address. There are two

components – the airfreight and the sea freight which can come later.

 

The airfreight component needs to come in from within 2 weeks.

 

Government to advise Solomon Islands to prioritise Airfreight Drugs and Supplies ahead of other cargo in the next month.

 

Dr Dalipada said the most urgent action needed now is to bring in the emergency drugs which are shown in a separate attachment.

“If we can obtain emergency airfreight within the next 2 weeks, then together with the critical drugs (already in the country) and the essential drugs ((arriving in August) will tie the country over to when the interim order arrives in August/September.

Financing for the procurement

He also explained arrangement for financing the procurement.

“Existing arrangement with all our prequalified supplier is that will supply to order, and payment is made following receipt of products and validation of their quality. Basically, the only money we need to provide upfront is for the airfreight to the airlines,” he said..

Dr Dalipada said the Solomon Islands Government would be taking over the financing of drugs for the hospital from hereon. This, he said, would be lessened by the fact that SIG would be taking on the total financing of the country’s drugs and supplies.

Meanwhile Dr Dalipada has provided further details on Emergency Drugs and Dressing for airfreighting.

Below is the airfreight part which is being airfreight as well with estimated time of arrival (ETA) and deliveries after two weeks. Part of this list which is very critical, its ETA will be within the next two weeks.
