Why is there a shortage of syringes? The US blockade !
Cuba cannot access equipment, medications or supplies if the vendor or the transportation company is US-owned , has a US subsidiary or does business with the US.
Cuba now needs syringes to ensure a fast and effective vaccination campaign of its population.
With our partner mediCuba-Europa we are funding a new campaign to buy syringes and needles for the vaccination campaign of the Cuban population.
Medi-Cuba says they already anticipate a first sending of funds for the first purchase of syringes in the next few days. A second sending is planned for June.
Medi-Cuba-Europa is also contributing financially to the purchase of important medicines and pharmaceutical raw materials for Cuba.
