Abou Faour aspires for turning food safety into a general policy for all governments to follow

FEBRUARY 8, 2015 (REFERRING TO THE NATIONAL NEWS AGENCY – LEBANON) As the food safety campaign turned into government policy, we aspire to transform it into an all-out approach for all governments to follow, minister of Health Wael Abou-Faour, informed western Beqaa physicians whom he met at Rashayya-based Kamal Jumblatt Cultural Center today.

The demand for a uniform medical prescription could not be retracted since it benefits patients, doctors and nation-state at large, he added. Actual standing of each and every physician needs to be bolstered as part of a comprehensive reformatory plan, he announced. We are not merely self-delusional in striving to combat corruption and we in the Socialist party, deem such an undertaking worthwhile, he exclaimed.

The Physicians’ Syndicate up till now acts in contravention of the law albeit, I am willing to give them a second chance, Abou-Faour concluded.
