"N1Bn Worth Of HIV Drugs Expired In Storage" - Health Minister

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, has revealed that $3.2m ( N1.08bn) worth of HIV drugs expired in storage.
.
Adewole added, “ The issue is that the drugs expired because of some challenges in the system and we are trying to putting that behind us. We are now putting together a network of logistics supply system . We have two excellent facilities in Abuja and Lagos which we call ‘Warehouse in a Box ’.
.
“ The one in Abuja is called Premium Medical Supplies Store and everything there is computerised and with that kind of system, there will be no more expired drugs because we will be able to monitor them electronically. It will be a system of first in, first out and we will also be monitoring expiry dates.

.
“ What we are also trying to avoid in the country is a situation where we take drugs that are about to expire . When you pick drugs that have short shelf lives like six months, they can expire easily. ”
.
Meanwhile, Adewole has said putting money in the health sector is not expenditure but an investment that will yield dividends.
