“There will always be some shortages as also seen in New Zealand,” says Health Director Aiono Dr. Alec Ekeroma.
He revealed that the reasons can be, “shortages of raw materials, getting it here on time, and speed of payments.”
When asked about what has been done to address this issue, Aiono said, “many meetings discussing many options and more planned.”
Furthermore, the Director General explained that shipments are received every week and essential drugs are already stocked.
“Still waiting on some drugs that are needed for specific cases.”
