“The Ministry of Health (MoH) is studying several proposals regarding the regulation prices of pharmaceutical products. Pegging of foreign currencies against the dirham is also under evaluation to ensure availability of medicines at affordable prices,” said Humaid Al Shamsi, Assistant Undersecretary for Pharmacy Supply in the MoH.
Al Shamsi said his ministry has prepared a list with the prices of medicines and the currency rates available in the market, and forwarded them to higher authorities requesting a revision.
