The draft law establishing the Egyptian Drug Authority and the Egyptian Authority for Purchasing Medical Supplies and the Department of Medical Technology is a major step forward for Egypt. The establishment of these authorities aims to develop the health system and medical industries, provide medication on a regular basis, counter monopolistic practices in the medical sector, and combat fake medicines. The Egyptian Drug Authority’s objectives are to:
– Establish policies, rules and regulations for all matters related to the organization, implementation and control of the production and circulation of pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and raw materials, and verify their quality and effectiveness inside and outside Egypt.
– Develop the effectiveness and quality of pharmaceuticals and raw materials.
– Raise health awareness amongst professionals and the public.
– Cooperate and coordinate with national and international organizations.
