DOH opens more BnBs in Caraga region

Amidst clamor over high prices of medicines, the Department of Health (DOH) Caraga intensifies campaign on availability of cheaper medicines by opening up more Botika ng Barangays (BnBs) in the region.

DOH Caraga aims to establish one BnB outlet in two neighboring barangays before the end of 2010.

As of September 2009, DOH Caraga already has 439 BnBs in the region. This includes 68 BnBs in Agusan del Norte, 132 BnBs in Agusan del Sur, 128 BnBs in Surigao del Norte, 35 BnBs in Dinagat and 76 BnBs in Surigao del Sur.

The BnB aims to provide safe, effective, available, accessible, affordable and quality medicines to the majority of the people especially the poor.

BnB is a collaboration of the Department of Health (DOH), Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) and Philippine International Trading Corporation (PITC).

BnB is a drug outlet initially identified, evaluated and selected by the regional DOH and approved by PHARMA 50 PMU. It is duly licensed by the Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD).

BnB sells low-priced generic over-the-counter drugs and six selected prescription drugs namely Captopril, Metoprolol, Metformin, Glibenclamide, Amoxicillin and Cotrimoxazole. (PIA-Caraga)
