Cyprus doctors and patients are outraged by the state’s inability to provide medicines for professional or pioneering treatments fairly and promptly.
In fact, Nikos Zambogul, head of the German Oncology Center in Cyprus, told state radio on Monday that if you were an ordinary citizen, you could die waiting for special or pioneering medicines. Told.
But, like a miracle, if you are a civil servant or a prominent citizen, the medicine will be delivered quickly, cancer experts also say.
He said the procedure for transferring innovative therapies, chemotherapy and other specialty medicines from Nicosia to other districts is “time-consuming and dangerous.”
“Some people don’t seem to understand that we’re dealing with human life, and they continue to postpone the implementation of new, more efficient systems,” he added.
His remarks were made a few days after the Ministry of Hellas notified stakeholders that the new drug distribution system had been postponed until October. It was scheduled to be implemented last Friday.
