Guamuchil. Sinaloa.- "It is always advisable to report missing medicines to any hospital manager and not to compromise patients' health," said Secretary of Health Efrén Encinas Torres during his visit to the General Hospital in Guamúchil.
When asked about the progress of drug insurance, he replied that the current average supply is 60 percent. He added that a consolidated purchase process is underway, which started last year.
A civil servant delved into this issue and mentioned that it has not yet reached the Federal Ministry of Health to transfer the consolidated purchase to the Ministry of Finance; "He hasn't reached the platform yet," he said.
At the moment, the Ministry of Health is making the appropriate purchases. On this issue, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador recently stated at a morning conference that drug supply is normalizing.
He stressed that last year the government bought 90 billion pesos for medicines and medicinal supplies. The federal president said three companies sold nearly 70 percent to the government in this operation.
