Health Ministry to sign MoU with ACDIMA to build solutions factory

The Health Ministry is set to sign an MoU with the Arab Company For Drugs Industries & Medical Appliances (ACDIMA) to build facility to produce consumables including glucose, saline and ringer’s solutions, Health Minister Ahmed Emad said, Al Borsa reported on Wednesday. The move comes as a response to reports that there has been an ongoing shortage of the solutions in the domestic market following the shutdown of Al Mottahedoon Pharmam, which previously met 60% of domestic demand. Emad, however, said that there is no “crisis” despite claims that black market prices for some solutions have increased from EGP 80 to EGP 200 per pack.
