Health care – a social or business category

It is no secret that there is a mafia in pharmacy, starting from the World Health organization, and way up to individual countries! It is high time for the pharmacy in our country to definitely be put in the function of the interests of citizens, and not the business interests of the bosses of companies! This can be achieved by prescribing a maximum margin for drugs and supporting medical supplies and with transparent tenders for their procurement, writes Kosta Stoimenovski.
