Local pharmacists associations step up instead of KPA

Seoul Pharmacists Association recently started its survey to figure out how pharmacies by traditional pharmacists do their business locally.

Kim Jon Hwan, President of Seoul Pharmacists Association said, “I met a pharmacist at a preceptor training session. He said his pharmacy is surrounded by traditional pharmacies. I want to find the solution with the survey results.”

Some local pharmacists associations have prevented traditional pharmacists from opening pharmacies in their area by have public health centers notify traditional pharmacists of the possible issue of selling over-the-counter drugs.

An official of a local pharmacists association said, “Public health centers agree that traditional pharmacists should not sell OTC drugs, but I don’t know what the Ministry of Health and Welfare and Korean Pharmaceutical Association do. Can they send the official letter to traditional pharmacies about the issue?”

It is known that traditional pharmacies can’t make money only with traditional herbal supplements.
