The Panhellenic Pharmaceutical Association (PFS) and Pharmaceutical Association of Attica (FSA) have warned of serious medicine shortages and called the government to intervene to avoid any further exacerbation of the problem.

According to the pharmacists, the shortages are attributed to both legal exports, as well as illegal exports of medication, on top of the distribution problems and pharmaceutical companies withdrawing their products due to low prices.
