Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Security Program
In virtue of the Department Personnel Order No. 2020 – 1032 entitled “Creation of a Technical Working Group (TWG) for the Formulation and Implementation of the Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Security Policy and Plans in light of COVID-19 Pandemic and other instances of Drug Shortages”, a TWG was created to formulate and implement the Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Security Plan based on a comprehensive strategic framework that details the various health systems, policies, programs, financing requirements, and contextual environments that need to be in place to strengthen supplies for specific categories of medical devices as well as medicines. The Pharmaceutical Division (PD) was assigned to be the TWG secretariat. Likewise, PD was also tasked by the Response Cluster to monitor the supply of COVID-19 therapies in the hospitals, help address issues of drug shortages and coordinate with the Philippine Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on matters related to the registration of COVID-19 investigational drugs.
