LMHRA Reacts To Employees’ Salary Allotment Issues

The Management of the Liberia Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Authority (LMHRA) has described as false, malicious and a total misrepresentation of the fact, recent publication by the media that employees of the LMHRA are decrying salary disparity.
According to the LMHRA, the publication is malicious and only intended to distract the public from appreciating the enormous progress ongoing at the authority.
However the LMHRA clarifies that it has got no control over salary allotment to employees as insinuated by the so-called sources as alleged rather, salary allotment to employees are the sole prerogative of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) and the Civil Service Agency (CSA) Salary Harmonization Taskforce in line with the recent Harmonization Law passed by the Legislature.
Therefore, LMHRA is encouraging the media to check with the harmonization team at the MFDP and CSA for facts surrounding salary disbursement to employees of government ministries agencies and commissions.
LMHRA also clarified that its Managing Director has not surrounded herself with her classmates and schoolmates rather those in the employ of the Authority are all trained and educated pharmacists who were all employed based on their academic and professional qualifications.
Therefore, the LMHRA Management is encouraging these distractors to ascertain all facts appertaining to LMHRA, with regards to payroll, from the HR departments and the MFDP.
Meanwhile, the LMHRA has ensured that a mini-quality control lab is constructed and 100 percent completed and awaiting subsequent dedication by the President of Liberia; aimed at ensuring quality testing of all pharmaceuticals brought in the country, among others.
