Pharmaceutical Companies Threaten to Shut Down Due to Import Delays

In a desperate move to address the severe shortages of life-saving medications currently plaguing Pakistan, pharmaceutical companies have threatened to shut down operations and initiate protests on January 5th. The shortages, which also include vital medications for kidney and cardiac issues and insulin for diabetics, have been caused by the government’s mismanagement of import policies. Noor Meher, president of the Pakistan Drug Lawyer Forum, stated that 91% of Pakistan’s pharmaceutical raw ingredients are imported, and without permission to bring in new supplies, the industry feels it has no choice but to take drastic action. If the protests go ahead as planned, it could have serious consequences for the health and well-being of Pakistan’s citizens.
