Outside the facilities of SOLCA, the parents of a young girl – suffering from lymphona – were waiting to complete the money needed to buy 8 vancomycin blisters that was needed to cure her illness.
Other patients and their families were found in similar circumstances, because there is a lack of medicines at SOLCA, because the State has not paid 130 million dollars of debt to the entity. According to the centre, 40 million dollars is invested in providers, materials, and medicines.
