Supply AIDS Inhibitors normalized by end this year

Curacao hospitalWILLEMSTAD – The supply of AIDS Inhibitors will be normal again by the end of this year. This is according to Cura+ spokesperson Mario Kleinmoedig. The St. Elizabeth Hospital (Sehos) and the interest group met yesterday to talk about the shortage of the antiretroviral drugs on the island.

This week the organization sounded the alarm. There is a shortage of the inhibitor at the hospital pharmacy and apparently the drug was replaced with other medication. There are more than 500 HIV patients on the island.

The hospital is struggling with payment problems and therefore do not always have access to the antiretroviral drugs. End of the year they expect to have things back on track, and the medication will be available again.
