The FAMHP has developed an application to communicate about the availability of medicines: PharmaStatus.
PharmaStatus provides information about authorised medicines that are commercialised in Belgium and medicines that were commercialised until recently. That information relates to medicines for human and for veterinary use. The application shows whenever medicines are new on the market, are temporarily unavailable, are re-available or whenever the commercialisation of a product has been temporarily or permanently discontinued. Healthcare professionals can use PharmaStatus to look up whether a medicine is available and they can register to be kept informed about the availability of a specific product.
Pharmacists can contact the marketing authorisation holder directly via the application in the event of a problem with availability or on-site deliveries.
