Provide Safe and Efficacious Medicines

Suara.com – The pharmaceutical industry plays an important role in the aspect of Indonesia’s health security. What is its function?

Director General of Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices, Ministry of Health, Dr. Dra. Lucia Rizka Andalusia Apt. M.Pharm. MARS said that health security can be translated as the independence of the nation’s independence in the pharmaceutical sector, which is very important.

According to him, this can be done by the pharmaceutical industry by increasing domestic drug production so that it no longer relies on imports.

Of course, this cannot be done by the pharmaceutical industry alone. There must be an ecosystem called Pentahelix from academia, industry and government. This ecosystem will work from research, raw materials to formulations in the form of medicinal products.

To support this, the Ministry of Health will provide non-fiscal facilities in the form of clinical trial financing for the innovating pharmaceutical industry. “Like the current red and white vaccine, we pay for it,” he explained.

He hopes that GPFI will be involved in the production of a complete basic immunization vaccine. “We hope that the 14 complete basic immunization vaccines will be produced in Indonesia with the most advanced technology,” he said.

Deputy for Control of Drugs, Narcotics, Psychotropics, Precursors and Addictive Substances of the Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM) Dra. Roro Mayagustina Andarini, another speaker appreciated GPFI’s work in producing quality, safe and efficacious drugs.

“BPOM supervises from the beginning, starting when the product is prepared, monitoring until the product is registered. Especially for medicinal products, we are very strict in monitoring,” said Maya.
