WASHINGTON Black Kerryon Johnson Jersey , Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Tom Price resigned on Friday amid increasing fire over his frequent and expensive private jet trips, becoming the first cabinet secretary to leave the Donald Trump administration.

Price offered his resignation on Friday and President Donald Trump accepted it, White House Press Secretary said in a statement.

""The President intends to designate Don J. Wright of Virginia to serve as Acting Secretary Black Frank Ragnow Jersey , effective at 11:59 p.m. on September 29, 2017,"" the statement said. Wright currently serves as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Health and Director of the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.

Price has been under heavy fire since U.S. media outlets found he had flown on at least 26 private flights since May Black Marvin Jones Jr Jersey , including five domestic flights within one week this month.

He apologized on Thursday, saying he will pay a portion of the costs of his official travelling on private charter planes and will permanently halt his use of charter flights for official business as the health secretary.

However, the total cost of the private jets Price flew on was reportedly more than 400 Black Golden Tate III Jersey ,000 U.S. dollars and Price would pay only 51,887.31 U.S. dollars for his seat on those planes, according to an HHS spokesperson.

Price is not covering the cost for his staffers who flew with him on those charter planes Black Darius Slay Jr Jersey , said the spokesperson on Thursday.

Many of Price's flights were between major cities that offered inexpensive alternatives on commercial airlines. One leg was from Washington D.C. to Philadelphia, a distance of some 130 miles (208 kilometers).

Moreover, on some of those trips Black Matthew Stafford Jersey , Price reportedly mixed official business with personal affairs such as having a lunch with his son.

On Wednesday, Trump said he was not happy with Price's private jet travel, saying ""we'll see"" when asked whether he will remove Price over the issue.

The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday launched a bipartisan investigation into the use of private planes by all members of the Trump cabinet. Senator Chuck Grassley on Thursday sent a letter asking the White House to detail its efforts to control officials' travel costs.

Price has frequently criticized government waste since his appointment as health secretary and during his tenure in the House of Representatives Black Ziggy Ansah Jersey , where he once chaired the House Budget Committee.


NAIROBI, June 22 (Xinhua) -- Kenya is set to have guidelines on parallel importation of medicinal substance in the next three months, an official said on Wednesday.

Fred Siyoi, the Deputy Registrar of the Pharmacy and Poisons Board, said the guidelines will help reinforce the existing act on parallel importation that has been abused in the past.

"All medicine importers will henceforth be required to avail their consignments for inspection at the port of entry to ensure that the imported products retain their quality, safety and efficacy," Siyoi said in Nairobi at a stakeholders' meeting.

Parallel importation is the importation of a medicinal substance by an importer outside the manufacturer's or its licensed distributor's formal channels.

According to the World Health Organization, parallel imports often takes place when there is differential pricing of the same products -- either brand-name or generic drugs -- in different markets, usually owing to local manufacturing costs or market conditions.

In the recent past, Kenya's regulation of parallel importation of trademarked medicinal substance has become a contentious issue involving conflicting principles and policies that required a review to ensure that the regulation continues to serve the public interest.

Siyoi said that lack of guidelines had led to pharmacists in the country selling medicine at the prices that were not dictated by the market.

"We have witnessed instances where importers concentrate in economic value by taking advantage of price difference between markets to capitalize upon the imbalance to gain profit," Siyoi said.

He added that stakeholders had focused on the economic issues of parallel imports rather than a critical analysis of the value of parallel imports to patients in a broader context.

"The guidelines are set to determine the cost benefit to the patients and not merely making gains by the importers," Siyoi said.

Wilberforce Wanyanga, a pharmaceutical expert with the UN Industrial Development Organization, said that the guideline will help close the window for counterfeit medicine in the country.

"This move is likely to help protect patients by availing medicines at a cheaper price," Wanyanga added.

The Chairman of Kenya Pharmaceutical Association, Kamamia Muricho, said the development of a guideline in parallel imports can reduce the price of health products and pharmaceuticals by introducing competition.

He said that patients with non-communication diseases were the most affected as the price of medicine kept varying.

"The guideline now stands to benefit Kenyans outside Nairobi and Mount Kenya region as they will access medicine cheaply," he said.

Muricho lamented that it was unfortunate that many patients sold . Calvin Ridley Jersey Baker Mayfield Jersey Authentic Antonio Brown Jersey Alvin Kamara Womens Jersey A.J.
