Ukrainian pharmacies will sell antibiotics solely by prescription.
This decision was made in Cane of Ministers. It was discussed in the last few years.
What will change after the implementation of government decisions in practice
Prestupniki government called this innovation as a national action plan to combat antimicrobial resistance.
As explained in the Ministry of health of Ukraine, now in Ukraine will have to rationalize the use of antibiotics in the (vet)medicine and in food industry.
Therefore, to dismiss these popular drugs in accordance with the standards of the European Union, the same rules are long established and in many other civilized countries of the world.
What is the need of prescriptions for antibiotics
The decision for Ukraine to antibiotics are sold by prescription only, discussed for years in a row. So, at the end of 2016 even started a flash mob “Antibiotic prescription”.Experts tried to draw public attention and to emphasize about the dangers of uncontrolled use of such Vileda drugs.
The fact that Ukrainians are very often prescribe antibiotics themselves. As a result, we have even more health problems because these drugs at the wrong reception and not in the quantities that you need, have a very detrimental effect on the body.
“After a few years antibiotics may cease to function for most ailments. For example, pneumonia, gonorrhea, tuberculosis, and serious post operative complications will be fatal for all humanity,” explained then the Chairman of the NGO “infection control in Ukraine” and one of the organizers of the flashmob Victor Lyashko.
The depth of this problem of striking magnitude. According to experts, every 2nd Ukrainian who use antibiotics, in fact, do not require treatment of them. And every third uses these medications when enough to drink a lot and destimulates bed rest, such as the common cold.
Experts point out that frequent use of antibiotics in humans is addictive to such drugs, so that they cease to operate.
One of the threats to mankind
in General, the sale of antibiotics prescription is a common practice in many countries of the world. So, in the UK it is impossible to buy without a prescription any medication except painkillers and antipyretics.
In Ukraine, want to apply such practice to such drugs and their dosage prescribed only by a doctor.
The Ministry of health’ya Ukraine gave explanations, why is there a need for reform. According to experts of the Ministry, antifungals, antibiotics and antimicrobial agents cease to operate because of the excessive and often unwarranted use of such drugs, the microorganisms begin to develop a kind of “immunity”: they change and become insensitive to the drugs.
“In fact s are the new versions of pathogens that cannot be cured by antimicrobial medications. As a consequence, today people are dying all over the world. This problem has been recognized as one of the threats to humanity” – commented issue in the MINISTRY of health.
The health MINISTRY warned that such innovations will in no way affect their value and will not cause a shortage of medicines in pharmacies.
