Hassan Tamini, member of the Health Committee of the Majlis, says that while the use of exchange currency in a section as important as health is highly risky, the government has allocated to reference currency to drugs and the Majlis has to accept the fact for the time being, Zendegi reported.
Tamini said "The Majlis has done all that it had in its power to return the reference currency back to drugs. But what has happened is that the government has banned such currency for the drug section and nothing has been done about it.”
He pointed out that as the result of this, problems are likely to arise such as inflation in the drug section, problems in production of drugs, multiple prices for the same drug, and dissatisfaction among people.
"One approach to avoid that is to sell oil in exchange for drug. The government has been proposed to sell oil for drugs, to which it has not yet given an answer,” the Lawmaker said.
