‘Health is multi-disciplinary, not limited to one profession’
Olumide Akintayo, is President, Pharmaceutical society of Nigeria (PSN). In this interview with CHIOMA UMEHA (HEALTH EDITOR) Akintayo tackles issues of fake drug distribution, primary health care among others. Excerpts:
The PSN is critical in the efforts to bring sanity to drug distribution and eliminate fake drugs. What are you doing in this regard?
While we were campaigning, I came up with this blue print, a 13-point agenda. The totality of our plans to transform the health sector to the next level was documented in this package. It is not the direct responsibility of PSN to either come up with an agenda of restructuring drug distribution in Nigeria or eliminate fake drugs in the distribution chain.
