To ensure sufficient availability of critical medical equipment for clinical management of COVID-19 in the country, the Union Health Ministry said on July 3 that it has identified a list of critical medical equipment and has requested National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) to ensure its availability at affordable prices to the consumers.

“In order to keep check on the price rise of critical medical equipment, NPPA, in exercise of powers conferred under DPCO, 2013, has called for price-related data from manufacturers/importers of Pulse Oximeter and Oxygen Concentrator to ensure that prices existing as on 1st April, 2020 should not be increased more than 10% in a year,” noted a release issued by the Ministry.
