Chemists� body ensures steady supply of medicines

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, April 5 - The Chemists & Druggists Association of Assam (CDAA), the only affiliated state body under the All India Organisation of Chemists & Druggists (AIOCD), today said in a statement that as medicines and other essential items were exempted from the purview of the lockdown, its members � both retail pharmacies and wholesalers � in different districts of the State have been regularly providing their services in the public interest.

�Our organisation ensures that sufficient stocks of medicines and baby food are available in Guwahati CFA/Company Depots for the next fortnight. Usually, these items are supplied by companies to their authorised stockists and from stockists to wholesalers/retailers, so that the supply ultimately goes to the consumers uninterruptedly. It is categorically admitted that the challenges include transportation, availability of staff/workers, etc., which have been taken up with the District Disaster Management authorities,� it said.

�Our helpline mobile numbers for Assam and other north-eastern states have been made available to transporters to maintain the supply chain of essential items, etc. In spite of such efforts, the percentage of staff/workers turnout is poor and below a satisfactory level,� it added.

It also appealed to the authorities concerned for helping it during the crisis situation and ensure mobility of its staff/workers in every district of Assam to avoid disruption in the supply chain of medicines and other essential items.
