This forms contain general information such as a general description of these diseases, diagnosis, and treatments, source of direction, and last but not least, pointers to refer to more information. The health declaration form has to be filled in carefully and accepted by the applicant so as to satisfy the prerequisites.
In accordance with the present laws in the nation, a resident has the liberty to purchase drugs from pharmacies accepted by the ministry of health. It's the obligation of the resident to examine and comprehend the directions contained in the health declaration form before using or consuming any drug. A resident may obtain information on the QR code, whether he understands it or not. If he doesn't, he has the option to get in touch with the doctor for advice. When the resident has understood the directions, he might proceed to buy the drugs in the pharmacy offering the lowest prices. However, if he still does not understand the QR code, then he must request his pharmacist to clarify it for him.
If a resident does not know the QR code, he must first ask his pharmacist for help. If he is still unable to understand the directions, he may give a call to the National Pharmaceutical License Corporation (NPLC) who will in turn provide the resident a pharmacist's prescription for the medication required. The NPLC also provides the resident with information about the production of these drugs, the uses and the precautions against the misuse of the medication. The NPLC website can be contacted online through their dedicated site. The resident can fill in the form on line and download the certificate. Alternatively, a paper copy of the same may also be obtained in the office of the Pharmaceutical License Corporation.
