1 Mins read

The Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana (PSHG) has told all its members to bring their pharmaceutical knowledge and expertise to bear in the fight against the coronavirus infection.

Ghana has recorded sixteen cases of the coronavirus outbreak as at Friday Morning, March 20.

A statement issued by the group said: “As the professional body of pharmacists, PSHG has continued to reach out to its membership on the appropriate measures to take to contribute professionally towards mitigating the spread of the COVID-19.

“Community pharmacies (and pharmacists) are often the first port of call within the healthcare system for most people with health-related concerns or simply in need of information or reliable advice.”

“We call on the government to provide the needed and appropriate Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) for the use of community pharmacy practitioners. This will enable them to discharge their duties professionally and reduce the risk of infection.

“The PSGH is collaborating with the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association of Ghana (PMAG) to make available locally prepared sanitizers in bulk to community pharmacies.

“The PHGS is also engaging and collaborating with small scale pharmaceutical manufacturers to prepare alcohol-based hand sanitizers for supply to community pharmacies.

“All pharmacists are also entreated to bring their pharmaceutical knowlegedge and expertise to bear in these critical times and extemporaneously prepare safe and efficacious alcohol-based hand sanitizers for use by various facilities, staff, personnel and the general public.
