    Illegalities in the Health system are analyzed in Ciego de Ávila

    Illegalities in Health system are analyzed in Ciego de Ávila

    Political, governmental and administrative authorities agreed in Ciego de Ávila on the need to act rigorously against the illicit sale of medicines and increase control over the path that drugs follow until they reach patients.

    During the workshop held at the Doctor Antonio Luaces Iraola Provincial General Teaching Hospital, which concluded the political process of confronting these illegalities, carried out in all municipalities and health institutions, the participants delved into the causes that motivate it.

    Dr. Margarita Monteagudo, official of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba, who chaired the meeting, explained that the lack of medicines throughout the country has led to the incidence of this type of infraction.

    The lack of control in the distribution of drugs, complacency when dispensing prescriptions, the poor work of pharmacies and poor medical practices, are the main factors detected during the analysis of this political process that is taking place throughout Cuba, Monteagudo said.

    Kesnel Lima Ruiz, municipal director of Health Institution in Ciego de Ávila, stated that measures to solve the problem on Illegalities on Health system should be integrated into the work systems, since the mechanisms exist, but most of the time they are not met with the necessary rigor.

    With regard to the control of these processes, the provincial director of Pharmacies, Dulce María Fernández Martínez, emphasized the importance of transparency during the course of receiving medicines in these institutions and the need for better communication between doctors, patients and the pharmaceutical staff.

    Last year, when the territory was experiencing a complex epidemiological situation, several measures were adopted to stop the illegal sale of drugs and avoid crowds, thus volunteer messengers emerged and continue to provide this service to their communities to date.

    However, the main deficiency of this initiative lies again in the lack of control, since many times the distribution of the products is not carried out in an equitable manner, according to several delegates from constituencies present at the debate.

    On the legal side, Ana Mary Valdés-Thompson, chief of the Prosecutor's Office in the province, commented that from the administrative point of view, actions could be taken to prevent illicit marketing, such as the segmentation of products that arrive from abroad and those of the internal system.

    In conclusion, Dr. Margarita Monteagudo stressed the importance of treating the population with respect, protecting their right to acquire the medicine they need at all times, and the imperative of being more rigorous with the health personnel involved in these illegalities.
