Pharmacists under the aegis of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria (PSN) have urged the Federal and State governments to ensure drug availability and security in the country.

PSN, through its Lagos Chairman, Gbolagade Iyiola, said government at all levels must invest significantly in primary healthcare (PHC) with emphasis on preventive therapy through the maximum engagement of Environmental Health Officers.

The body said the government must also tinker with the budget to feature preventive care therapy at the expense of curative therapy.

To open the restricted borders of progression in healthcare in Nigeria, PSN urged the Presidency to direct unhindered access of training facilities to all health workers in training at undergraduate and post-graduate levels.
