US sanctions affect health programs

Health programs aimed at the care of children with chronic diseases have been hit hard by the economic and financial sanctions imposed by the United States on Venezuela, denounced the president of Fundalatin, Eugenia Russián.

In a forum convened by the European solidarity network with Venezuela, Russian pointed out that in addition to health programs, these unilateral measures affected the acquisition of food, care for people with disabilities and the country's economy, despite the efforts of the Government for mitigating the hostile policies of the United States.

He added that Fundalatin has documented 43 children waiting for bone marrow transplants and with cancer. In this regard, he regretted that the US sanctions have claimed the lives of five infants waiting for a transplant.
