The Liberia Medicine and Health Products Regulatory Authority (LMHPRA) has accredited about forty pharmacies across Bong County. Speaking to our Bong County correspondent recently after the presentation of accreditation, Pharmacist Henry Gbormor of the Liberia Medicine and Health Product Regulatory Authority said they were glad to certificate drugs stores that have fully met the requirements of being accredited.
Their accreditations come after meeting guidelines set by the LMHPRA. Pharmacist Gbormor added that before the accreditation, they were able to inspect all of the facilities to ensure they met the guideline set by his institution.
“It is good that we certificate those that are immensely contributing to the development of professional medicine in our country and as such, we saw it necessary for us to certificate those guys,” Mr. Gbormor continued.
He warned those accredited that their pharmacies stand the risk of losing their accreditation if they do not keep within the standard set by the LMHPRA.
He wants members of the public to only do business with the medicine stores or pharmacies that have been accredited by LMHPRA. Pharmacist Gbormor added that they have also accredited several drug stores and pharmacies in Lofa and Nimba Counties.
In an interview with this paper, those accredited praised the LMHPRA for their accreditation. They expressed believe that the accreditation of their drugs stores has given their businesses advantage to gain trust from the public.
