An-Najah's Department of Pharmacy Produces Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizers to Distribute to Campus Community
In response to COVID-19 pandemic, and in order to realize An-Najah National University's vision for sustainable development, the University's Department of Pharmacy at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences has been commissioned to make and produce hand sanitizers, whilst maintaining strict safety requirements during this public health crisis.
Since the pandemic's onset in March, the University's Department of Pharmacy developed their own sanitizer and began distributing it on campus.
In an effort to aid the campus community during a time when hand sanitizer is scarce, the Department of Pharmacy at An-Najah prepared and produced over 1500 bottles that meet quality standards and specifications for alcohol used in pharmaceuticals.
With a wide shortage of hand sanitizers since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a large amount of those bottles were donated to the Nablus governorate to help address and ease the hand sanitizer shortage. It is worth mentioning the University's Department of Pharmacy will continue to produce and distribute hand sanitizers on campus to meet the University's needs.
