Mexico, Apr 25 (Prensa Latina) Mexico, Colombia and Cuba will on Wednesday sign the Declaration of Acapulco, the first step in the constitution of the Latin American and Caribbean Medicines Agency (Amlac), Healthcare Official Alejandro Svarch informed.

At the morning press conference conducted by the Secretary of the Interior, Adan Augusto Lopez, standing in for President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who is recovering from Covid-19, Svarch, director of the Federal Commission for Protection against Health Risks (Cofepris), made the announcement.

The signing of the major declaration in the beach resort of Acapulco, Guerrero state, on Wednesday, will be public, the official said.

While giving a report on the actions against vapers, in which he showed that they are even more harmful than tobacco, Svarch noted that the decision by the drug regulatory authorities from the three countries is a major step forward to create the Amlac, which already has the consent of 10 countries.

The Amlac will allow for the transformation of the offices specialized in the subject and will contribute to self-sufficiency and pharmacological sovereignty. He noted that Mexico is working with Colombia and Cuba, which have regulatory agencies that are highly recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO).
