PSJ Advisory: Medication Safety and Best Practices

The executive and membership of The Pharmaceutical Society of Jamaica (PSJ) join with The Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) and other Health Professional Organizations in asking for all citizens to take precautions given by the reputable authorities. The Government and Ministry of Health and Wellness are giving regular updates to assist in protecting you.

Information is also available from The World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other national associations. As stated in the publication of the International Pharmacy Association, Coronavirus infections can be prevented and an outbreak can be stopped through the active engagement of decision-makers, healthcare professionals, the media and the community, as demonstrated in previous coronavirus outbreaks such as in 2003 with SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus) or in 2012 with MERS-CoV (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus).
