The 123 products for which there were no offers in the recent tender, will be purchased abroad through international organizations.
Due to the low participation of bidders (9 out of 32 companies who purchased the bidding rules), only 197 products out of a total of 320 could be offered in a tender issued last week. Therefore the 123 products that were left out will not be awarded, but instead acquired through international mechanisms, said Fuad Hasbum, president of the National Association of Drugstores.

Health Minister, Arturo Benda, said the purchase will seek to cover supply of 453 essential medicines. He added that to participate in the bidding process suppliers must be registered with the Department of Health.
