STO opens pharmacies in Maalhos, Kamadhoo
State Trading Organization (STO) has opened pharmacies in two islands of Baa atoll under the Government’s project to facilitate easy access to pharmaceuticals for remote communities.
The pharmacies were inaugurated in Maalhos and Kamadhoo on Thursday.
The public limited company’s pharmacies were also opened last week in Raa atoll Rasmaadhoo island and Raiymandhoo in Meem.
STO said that the project’s target is to set up its pharmacies in all inhabited islands, adding that Aasandha universal health insurance service is available from all such branches.
With these additions, STO now has 7 pharmacies in Baa atoll, with a total 125 across the whole country.
STO aims to open a pharmacy in each inhabited island — with Aasandha service — before the end of the year.
