Venezuela's Pharmaceutical Federation declares state of emergency
The federation called upon the National Superintendence of Fair Costs and Prices to consider an internal review
"Inexplicably, the State itself is encouraging the destruction of the most sensitive sector in the drugs distribution chain while it allows those sectors in charge of their commercialization to get away with it. They are accountable for the indiscriminate increase in drug prices," a statement reads.
Sundecop is harming the sector although it knows the sector does not rely on an adequate technological framework or the appropriate financial resources.
The federation urged Sundecop to ponder the possibility of an internal review before imposing sanctions on more than half of the independent pharmacies.

At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis. Whether it was hopping on the subway, finding directions, playing waiting games at public agencies, eating whatever he could and sleeping wherever he could, Guerrero senior had been wandering the streets for 60 days, and thanks to "the boys" he found some sort of relief by way of helping hands.
