Alert: Medications and Future Flights, Peru (May 26, 2020)

Location: Peru (countrywide)

Medications:  If you are running low on your medications, Peru’s Ministry of Health maintains a Spanish-language web portal (https://bit.ly/3erY7HL) that allows users to search for prescription medication by name and verify the pharmacies in Peru that carry the medication. You can initiate a search by brand name or active ingredient.  The U.S. Embassy recommends calling in advance to confirm pharmacy hours and that the medication is in stock before going to the pharmacy.
