Havana.- Cuba's healthcare system has taken actions to guarantee the stability of medicines for the benefit of the population.
Plans involve the Ministry of Public Health and the Grupo de las Industrias Biotecnológica y Farmacéutica (BioCubaFarma), among other institutions.
The measures include financing prioritized medicines, as well as those used to treat oncological and chronic diseases, which are highly demanded.
Furthermore, additional resources were allocated to import medications to treat high blood pressure, diabetes, and cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.
