Poor quality medicines and food supplied to some orphanages
Citing reliable sources, Zhoghovurd daily reports that poor quality medicines and food are supplied to some orphanages and old people’s homes of Armenia, with Armenia’s State Commission for the Protection of Economic Competition (SCPEC) carrying out audit in the sector.
Gayane Sahakyan, head of the press service of SCPEC, confirmed the rumor to Zhoghovurd.
“We keep our attention focused on the sector. We have received complaints from individuals about poor quality of food supplied. Now we check whether there is misuse of public funds in the sector. SCPEC will unveil results of the audit in September,” she is quoted as saying.
“One of the key achievements of the project implemented with UNDP/GEF support is the inclusion and support of extra-curricular environmental education as a strategic approach. This was a direct result of the series of roundtables jointly organized with EEN members and policymakers,” adds Sahakyan.
