PGMA awards The Generics Pharmacy. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo hands over a Certificate of Appreciation to Benjamin Liuson, president of The Generics Pharmacy (TGP) through Pacific Pharma for his support to the Project Nurses Assigned in Rural Service (Project NARS) partnership with the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Association of the Philippines. PHAP, through the PHAPCares Foundation, will sponsor an additional 100 nurses for deployment to 20 poorest municipalities in the country as part of its advocacy to promote greater access to healthcare. Under the memorandum of agreement signed between PHAP and the Project NARS implementers, namely the Department of Health and the Professional Regulation Commission, the partnership aims to provide employment to nurses and educate poor communities on how to manage their own health concerns and other health threats like the Influenza A(H1N1) virus. Also in the photo are (from left) Department of Social Welfare and Development Secretary Esperanza Cabral, PHAP President Oscar Aragon, PHAP Executive Director Reiner Gloor and Department of Labor and Employment Secretary Marianito Roque. TGP now has 345 outlets opened and by the end of the year, it will have 500 branches nationwide. It also offers low-priced equivalent medicines, like Paracetamol, a medication for fever, for only P0.60 per tablet against the leading brand at P2.75.
