The availability of an important group of medicines, as a result of the brutal economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States against Cuba, continues to be among the main causes that affect medical services at the Roberto Rodríguez Provincial Hospital, in the Avilanian city of Morón.
Medications for the treatment of ailments such as cancer, or liquid biopsy technology, which cannot be introduced into the country due to this genocidal policy, are some of those that are prevented from acquiring the country, something that becomes even more criminal when are intended for children.
To alleviate the situation, the country makes significant expenditures to buy them in third countries, including blockers, retrovirals for the treatment of multiple ailments that could improve the quality of life of patients, and latest-generation antibiotics for seriously ill patients, among others.
Likewise, the deficit of raw materials, property of branches or companies that do not sell medicines to Cuba for fear of extraterritorial sanctions imposed by the blockade, is increasing.
