Culture of self-medication is one of the problems for the rational use of medicines

Ordinance of the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) published on Thursday (11) Diário Oficial da União in establishing a working group with the aim of encouraging the rational use of medicines by focusing on the demand for prescription upon sale .

The group will consist of 30 members, including representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, the retail market for drugs, professional councils, medical associations, trade unions and universities, among others.

Among the skills of the workforce is to profile the dispensation of medicines subject to prescription in Brazil, and propose actions to be taken by the group, by ANVISA and the National Sanitary Surveillance System. They will also act in the implementation and monitoring of actions agreed in scope and approved by the Board of ANVISA.

Through note, Anvisa pointed out that, in Brazil, the sale of drugs without an income is a serious public health problem. The culture of self-medication and lack of control over the dispensing of these products in pharmacies and drugstores are factors that affect the entire chain of supervision over the production and use of medicines in the country.
