Each health institution must have Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee (PTC) consisting of the Medical Superintendent/Medical Officer In-Charge (Chairman), Pharmacist In-Charge (Secretary), consultants and other members of the medical staff, Nursing Officer In-Charge, and other health professionals as appropriate. The PTC members will elect a vice-chairman empowered to chair meetings in the absence of the chairman. The PTC will be responsible for overseeing drug selection and formulary management, policies on prescription, drug utilisation review, and policies on dispensing and administration of drugs. All drugs available at major health institutions must be approved by the PTC. The PTC should also establish policies for promotional activities by drug company representatives and evaluate their promotional material.
