Drug Shortage Hits the Kingdom Of Eswatini Again
The Kingdom of Eswatini has once again been hit hard by the shortage of drugs in health facilities. This is due to financial constrains currently experienced by the country.
This was revealed by Minister of Health Lizzy Nkosi yesterday at the Mountain Inn during the introduction of the Minister of Health’s senior health staff to the Minister. Nkosi assured the Nation and the senior staff that government will soon make some of the drugs available in some health facilities.
She explained that this is due to the ailing economy of the country. She assured the staff and senior management that government is aware about all challenges faced by the ministry and is doing something to address the situation.
On the 10th of November, Swazi News under the byline of Bonisile Makhubu reported about patients who were given short doses of treatment in some health facilities. One of the patients was quotes saying “I went to my clinic to refill my medication and I was told that I could only get tablets to last me a week instead of a month as usual”.
In the same report, Deputy Director of Health Services Dr Velaphi Okkello was quoted saying that she had not been made aware of any shortage of ART drugs and would investigate.
