No shortage of medicines and consumables mentioned in the Essential Drug List in the Delhi government hospitals from February 1: this is the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s promise to the city.
He has promised to provide drugs to patients free of cost at pharmacies. “We will ensure 100 per cent availability of medicines and consumables as mentioned in the Essential Drug List (EDL) at the city hospitals. 2016 will be the year of health and education for Delhiites,” said the



CM.
A helpline will also be launched on February 1, where people seeking treatment at Delhi government hospitals will be able to report about any shortage in medicine supply. Citizens will also be able to send a copy of the prescription on the helpline, so that Health department can make the medicines available.
Hospitals have been instructed to maintain three months reserved stock of drugs at all times with the Central Procurement Agency (CPA) having another 90 days reserve.
