The head of the parliamentary health committee, representative Bilal Abdullah, thanked “all those who helped resolve the hospitalization dilemma in yesterday’s cabinet session, without which there would have been a great danger that would have affected all family members of patients, dialysis patients, oncological diseases and incurable diseases, and outside the framework of political rivalries”, whereas “The Health Commission was united in this direction. We insisted on the Council of Ministers, even if it had an item on the agenda We place citizens’ health and their anti-drug health and safety above all considerations and above all political standards and controversies, and also above the constitution This is a fundamental issue and we are in a health committee We held a seminar and asked all the friendly countries of Lebanon to lend a hand, and we have stability or a list of collaboration with the Ministry of Health in this file and positive responses from some countries have started to communicate with questions and requests.

In his statement after the committee meeting, Abdullah stressed that “I had to present before the committee an official letter from the Islamic Republic of Iran stating their willingness to supply 22 medicines for cancerous and incurable diseases. I will refer the matter through the presidency of the council, obviously, to the Ministry of Health for its decision”.

He added: “Our main problem today is this low level that aesthetic medical surgery has reached in Lebanon, after we have completed the regulation of this practice, in coordination with the Ministry of Health and the unions and associations concerned. We have been in able, at a minimum, to establish legal and regulatory frameworks that take into account scientific standards related to Lebanon’s reputation.” And the level of medicine therein, which was, is and will remain a cornerstone in Lebanon’s prosperity, and God willing, will remain after it emerges from its current crisis.”

He continued: “But unfortunately, the economic collapse and social mobility that has occurred and the loss of state prestige in our country is as serious as it was before the law. Today there are cosmetics sold in the Lebanese market that are unlicensed and do not meet the scientific requirements. Unfortunately, we do not know who distributes or imports them and for whose benefit, and they are given to imitators. “Whether Lebanese or non-Lebanese, they are not scientifically qualified for medical work, and you know that l ‘injection that contains a medicine has a liability, any injection that can lead to death if the preparation is not correct and lead to complications and infections, and that’s what we see every day.

He added: “Every groomer, every unemployed person and every doctor who fails in his specialty has resorted to aesthetic medicine. Our meeting today is thanks to the Ministry of Health with the trade unions and associations concerned to establish legal rules and regulations in force Medical aesthetic surgery is limited to four specializations: dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ear, nose and throat and jaw surgeons, this law, which was completed in 2017, took into account all international scientific standards. Therefore, this is everyone’s responsibility, on us as doctors, on the Health Commission and on the Ministry of Health to implement it.”

Abdullah stressed: “We know the difficulties in the ministry, and we asked him to keep up with this file, and he has shown all the willingness to control this outbreak of types of cheap and unknown origin preparations that we don’t know if they are injected into this or that person, what will be the result. The most dangerous thing is that we present the reputation of Lebanon and medicine.” It is in danger after we were in Al-Sharq hospital, this voice we raised loudly today, and the request was for Prime Minister Nabih Berri to follow up on this file after receiving many complaints, and we thank the Minister of Health when he learned of this problem, and promised to take all required measures, and sent us the concerned persons. And they have to take responsibility, and there’s a decision made to control this file, and every copycat and speculator in the ads and on social media is going to pay the price, we’re going to prosecute. This is a decision taken at an official level, in coordination with President Berri, the Ministry of Health, the Health Commission and the trade union organizations concerned”.
