…medication regulations to be upgradedThe local pharmaceutical sector will be closely evaluated in the coming week in order to upgrade laws, acts, regulations and policies. The collaborative effort between the Public Health Ministry and the Pan American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) will primarily focus on the widespread abuse of anti-biotic medicines, the existence of illegal pharmacists and other irregularities instigated by many patients.Director of Pharmacies at the Public Health Ministry, Oneil Atkins, said the two-day consultation aims to beef up the “weak” medicines and pharmaceutical policies that currently exist and are preyed upon by patients, professionals and charlatans operating in the sector.Additionally, the forum is intended to assist patients with identifying which pharmacies are legally registered and also sharpen the awareness of said patients. Atkins noted that many patients are “too uninformed” about critical pharmaceutical issues and policy matters in the sector.Atkins also expressed concern over the fact that many patients visit pharmacists or physicians with the intention of demanding medication when most times all they need is a conversation with a specialist.The Public Health Ministry is especially concerned about the abuse of antibiotic medicines among practitioners and patients. It was highlighted that the widespread abuse is rampant in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica), and in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).Atkins, who also acts as an advisor to Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence, stated that the upgraded documents will see practitioners being ‘more responsible and accountable’ and help keep counterfeit drugs off the local market. He expressed hopes that the legislators will act ‘as fast as possible’ to get the new laws and regulations enacted to help the Public Health Ministry deal with the grave problem with antibiotic resistance in Guyana.When the issue was brought to light last year, Minister Lawrence noted that the long-overdue overhauling of the pharmaceutical sector is to help “administer the quality of primary healthcare and health services to the citizens of our beloved country.”
A startling revelation derived from a survey is that only 25 per cent of food businesses meet the sanitary requirements set out in regulations emanating from the Government Analyst Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD), and that body is now urging the public to report businesses that engage in unsanitary practices.Director of GA-FDD, Marlan Cole, has related that if reports are made, Food Inspection Officers would be armed with the information, which they would use to ensure the affected businesses comply with the regulations.Director of GA-FDD, Marlon Cole, and other officials of the Government Analyst Food and Drugs DepartmentSpeaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Cole said the public has a right to ensure and to demand proper services in terms of the sanitation of food businesses. He is calling on the public to share information with GA-FDD to assist the department is carrying out its mandate.“We believe in information-sharing and information for action, and the public could demand…. If persons are not using gloves, maybe the public should say, ‘Well, you should use gloves’; if they are not using hairnets in the facility to prevent the hair from going into the food…. The public is very vigilant in terms of where they go to eat, and so we are not advising people to stop supporting fast-food businesses, but they are eyes out there that can help us in our work, and the expectation is to prevent diarrhoeal diseases and food poisoning etc, because that will have a strain on our health systems,” Cole explained.Dr Susan Reynolds, Chief Medical Officer of the City Public Health Department, who was also present at the press conference, noted that if reports are made, then GA-FDD would immediately take action.“What the public can do is, if they have come down with an infectious disease like diarrhoea and vomiting, report it early; because if others have been eating from the same establishment, it means that we can categorise that as a food-borne illness and we could take further action immediately,” the CMO assured.However, in addition to the public support, Onika Alleyne-Blackman, Chief Meat and Food Inspector, has called for more staff, and more training of staff coupled with more frequent inspections for the food sanitation issue to be tackled.Coming out of the survey, which was carried out between September 2018 and April 2019, is that an alarming number of food businesses were found to be breaching sanitary regulatory requirements, with transgressions ranging from employees not properly washing their hands to the storage and preparation of meals; and this has now become a cause for concern.The survey was conducted on some 55 businesses in Georgetown, Corentyne, New Amsterdam, and those in the vicinity of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).Microbiological samples were taken of the food, from workers’ hands, from food contact surfaces, from food service containers, and air quality. Of the 99 food samples submitted, 37 per cent was unsatisfactory. Of the 102 hands of workers that were swabbed after washing, 47 per cent was unsatisfactory. In regard to food contact surfaces (cutting boards and utensils), 30 per cent of the 125 surfaces swabbed after cleaning was unsatisfactory, and 46 per cent of the 48 food service containers (food boxes) sampled were unsatisfactory.The air quality in most establishments was generally satisfactory, since 95 per cent of the 64 air quality samples taken was satisfactory.
