Expired medicines? Usamate Wants to Know

Minister for Health and Medical Services Jone Usamate has asked the cyclone-affected people on the islands to report to the ministry if they are being supplied with expired medicines.

The Minister made the request after some people claimed that expired medicines were distributed to people in Koro and Vanuabalavu islands by the ministry.

“We want to ensure that any medicine we send to Koro and Vanuabalavu islands are appropriate and are not expired.

“But if there are any issues or things that are not happening then let those people to get in touch with us,” he said.

Mr Usamate said it was better for people come to the ministry rather than complaining.

“They can then give us specific information and we can deal with it,” he said.
