PIMA asks for Drug testing laboratories in all major cities

KARACHI, Nov. 29 (APP): Pakistan Islamic Medical Association (PIMA) has urged the authorities for establishment of Drug Testing Laboratories in all major cities of the country.

Dr. Misbah ul Aziz, PIMA President, in a statement on Thursday said there was urgency to ensure that people in general and resource-less sections of the society in particular may no more fall victim to spurious drugs.

He said it was equally incumbent upon both provincial and federal governments to evolve a system, and also ensure fool-proof mechanism, so that drug and pharmaceutical sectors do not take advantage of any loophole at the cost of precious human lives.
