In this regard, the head of the National Program for Prevention and Control of STD, HIV-Hepatitis, Dr. Manuel Romero, explained that all patients received the drugs and the required medical follow-up.
In case of any difficulty, they are guaranteed another treatment, always very safe and adjusted to the latest developments in the pharmaceutical sector worldwide, said Romero at a press conference prior to the day of response to HIV2021, which will be held from December 1 under the slogan Putting an end to inequalities, AIDS and pandemics.
Some of them are doing well with their treatment, and when we inform them that an unforeseen problem has come out with their treatment, we proceed to explain to them about the alternative that will be used so as not to interrupt their medication, he said.
Not only do we buy the drugs through the world fund, but we also make use of BioCubaFarma, he pointed out.
They are making an effort and developing new drugs in order to achieve sovereignty in the treatment of Cuban patients, Romero pointed out.
