MoH approved the specifications for the purchase and sale of generic drugs

 

 

The Ministry of Health (MoH) has for the first time approved the specifications for the purchase and sale of generic drugs in the State of Kuwait, in order to lay the foundations and standards to ensure the safety of all generic drugs and follow-up the marketing of branded drugs.

The Assistant Undersecretary for Drug and Food Control Affairs at the Ministry of Health, Dr Abdullah Al-Bader said in a press statement that generic drugs have the same quality, effectiveness and safety as branded drugs, and that the use and dosage have the same effect, but the form and color may vary from company to company, and this difference does not affect the effectiveness and safety.He said that generic drugs are 85 percent cheaper than branded drugs, especially when marketing more than one generic drug for the branded drug, because there is no need for testing and scientific studies as happens with branded drugs. He stressed the decision pertaining to conditions and specifications for the purchase and sale of generic drugs is in the interest of rationalization and budgeting since generic drugs are cheaper.-A.T.
