The Republic of Moldova relies on the support of Romania and the European Union in obtaining the antiCOVID-19 vaccine. A statement to this effect was made by the director of the Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices (AMDM), Eremei Priseajniuc, during a meeting with MEP Cristian Buşoi, rapporteur of the European Parliament for the Health Program.
According to the Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices, during the talks, the two officials reviewed the latest developments in the context of the fight against COVID-19.
At the same time, they discussed the possibility of including the Republic of Moldova in Romania request to the European Commission for the vaccine against COVID-19, but also Remdesivir - the first drug authorized in the EU for the treatment of COVID-19 that has proven effective in diagnosed patients with the new Coronavirus.
"We rely on the support of Romania and the EU in obtaining antiCOVID-19 vaccines, as well as medicines authorized for the treatment of the new Coronavirus infection for the citizens of the Republic of Moldova", mentioned the general director of AMDM.
The officials also discussed the implementation in the Republic of Moldova of the best practices of the European Union in the field of pharmaceuticals and medical devices, especially in the context of the fight against COVID-19 virus. A special role in this process belongs to the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which ensures the accessibility, quality and safety of medicines on the European market.
"On the platform of the Commission for Research and in my capacity as head of the European Parliament's link with the EMA, I will stimulate AMDM's collaboration with the European Medicines Agency, but also other relevant institutions in the EU and Romania," said MEP Cristian Buşoi.
