The Order of Pharmacists rejected Monday Health Minister Wael Abu Faour's decision to slash by up to 24 percent pharmacists' service fees on medicine sales, calling on the government to instead provide free medical treatment for the poor.Hassouna said the protection of citizens and pharmacists can be attained through the application of laws and laying the foundation for "a healthy drug vision that can secure free treatment for the poor while showing strictness on the quality of medicine".He said pharmacists would not accept to be "scapegoats" in the health minister's latest decision to reduce prices of some medicines.
