When asked if the shortage of drugs has affected HIV/AIDS patients, Rahaman said that supply of that medication came from a different supplier which so far had been on a steady stream.

However he revealed that patients who suffer from other diseases such as cancer, heart complications and psychiatric and other chronic complications would have to wait for their supply.
