Answering the demands of pharmacies across Lebanon, the Lebanese Health Ministry said it would finally publish the regulations for subsidized and unsupported medicine.
Speaking in a media conference on Friday, caretaker Health Minister Hamad Hassan announced that subsidies will be lifted from medicines priced less than 12,000 LBP ($8 at the official rate) that can be found at primary health care centers.
The list of medicines that will remain subsidized includes medicines for chronic and incurable diseases, infant formula, vaccines, and mental and neurological diseases.
