The Health Ministry insists there is an ample supply of all CDAP drugs.
This, it adds, includes CDAP drugs to treat heart disease, cholesterol, asthma and diabetes.
It says while all pharmacies may not have every CDAP drug in stock at a particular time, there is an adequate national stock.
The Ministry also reminds pharmacy operators that while the provision of supplies is done through a cyclical process, interim re-orders for specific drugs may be requested.
Pharmacies are advised to submit these re-order requests to the NIPDEC well in advance of the depletion of stocks, so that there will be a consistent supply of critical drugs for the public.
