Between September and November, the Pharmacy Council shut down over 100 pharmaceutical shops in Ghana for operating unlawfully and prescribing incorrect prescriptions.

Dr. Daniel Danquah, the Council’s Deputy Registrar, stated that the Council is dedicated to upholding its regulations and would continue to take action against pharmacies that do not comply.

“About 10 companies have gone through the disciplinary procedure; others were closed. When they complied, it was opened at the regional level. So those reports don’t come to us directly.”

“But if you are trying to put together facilities that have been closed down within the year, it is a lot. We can have 100 closed down in two or three months,” According to the Pharmacy Council’s Deputy Registrar.

In recent months, the Council has been working to crack down on unlicensed pharmacies. Following the death of a 5-year-old kid, the Council closed down a pharmacy in the Ashanti Region in July of this year.

He was allegedly given the incorrect medicine at Life Dream Pharmacy in Kenyasi-Adwumam, Kwabre East Municipality, Ashanti Region.

In addition, the Council is trying to improve the quality of pharmacy services in Ghana. The Council has created a new pharmacy training program and is striving to tighten the regulatory framework for pharmacies.
