ArabFinance: The Egyptian Drug Authority (EDA) signed a cooperation protocol with both Pfizer’s Upjohn and healthcare technology company IQVIA Egypt and Saudi Arabia to automate the drug distribution process in the local market, Ahram Online reported.
The agreement is expected to help with the distribution of drugs that require tight control.
The protocol is consistent with the private sector’s role in the development process across the country, Deputy Chairman of the EDA Ayman el Khatib said, noting that this deal is in light of the authority’s plan for digital transformation and automation of its services.
Director-General of IQVIA Egypt and Saudi Arabia Mohamed Mostafa assured his company’s commitment to participating in the EDA’s operations and plans like developing android and IOS apps for mobile phones.
In line with the outbreak of COVID-19, the authority earlier warned against the excessive use of medications that have been claimed to prevent the virus contraction.
