The coordinator of the United for Cancer networkMaría Alejandra Iglesias, warned that despite the claims the Government of Javier Milei continues to paralyze the delivery of medications for patients with cancer, rare and chronic diseases.

Churches explained that the concern of patients undergoing treatment and their families has to do with the fact that, since the new Government took office, the Direct Assistance Directorate for Special Situations stopped the distribution of medicines.

“It has been more than four and a half months where patients with cancer and rare or chronic diseases They are not receiving their medication“, he assured about the organization that, at first, depended on Human capital and Pettovello and now it happened to Health.

Now, everything is false promises: “In February the Minister (of Human Capital, Sandra) Pettovello suspended the service to carry out an audit. She stopped giving medication. It is perfect that they do the audit, but not the brake on the delivery of medication. At the end of February they pass it to Health and there is no resolution of these cases either.”

And the one who promised, without real support, that it would be solved was the minister Mario Russo: “There were very few. There are 100 of them and today there are about 4,000 people waiting for their medication. We had a meeting with the minister where he told us that everything was going to remain the same, that they were going to continue with the programs, but to date it has not happened yet.

The situation, therefore, became unsustainable: “No one called the patients. This makes their situation of illness, cancer, anguish, helplessness, anxiety and fear add up. And to the family members, who are the ones who call so we can help them.”
