|Abstract: ||According to Martin and Cook (1961), drugs are substances or preparations intended for administration to human beings and animals for the purpose of restoration of health, or the prevention or diagnosis of a disease.
The drugs may be administered in various dosage forms such as tablets, syrups, powders, capsules suspensions or injections. Drugs include vaccines and sera administered generally to produce immunity to certain disease causative organisms by exciting the body to produce antibodies.
Drugs play a very important role in the health care delivery system in the country. The health needs of any country cannot be met without the provision of very good quality drugs.
In addition to the provision of essential drugs which is needed to cure people, four other components, immunisation, preventive medicine, treatment of common diseases, and maternal health depends upon the use of essential drugs. The government is highly concerned with the increasing demand for drugs and therefore highly in favour of local production.
These essential drugs do not only have to be available but also their quality in all aspects must be assured whether produced locally or imported.|
