Reports indicate that some who could must pay for their own medication.
This is because there is a shortage of much needed drugs at public health institutions.
There have been reports that this shortage is nothing new and has been occurring since the start of the year.
Speaking with News Power Now this morning, Chief medical Officer Dr. Clive Teelucdharry confirmed that there is a shortage of drugs for Cancer patients and chronically ill patients.
He stated that there is no other choice but to wait for the drugs since orders have already been made.
He explained that the situation was being addressed.
Cancer patients and other chronically ill patients who cannot afford medication on their own have no choice but to wait for the medication to make its way into the country.
