LIF started the provision of Methadone in Rosario

LIF delivered Methadone 5 mg and 10 mg tablets in five Public Hospitals in Rosario.

     These hospitals: Int. Gabriel Carrasco, Roque Saenz Peña, Juan B. Alberdi, de Niños Víctor J. Vilela and Centro de Especialidades Médicas Ambulatorias (CEMAR) are part of the Pilot Program to provide drugs for pain treatment in patients with active, progressive and advanced diseases.
     This Pilot Program was organized by the National Institute of Cancer (Health Ministry of the National Government).
     This program’s main objective is to provide medicines in different hospitals where people under pain therapy receive attention.
     In 2013, LIF and the National Institute signed an agreement of Collaboration and Mutual Assistance.
     Through this agreement LIF has researched and developed morphine 10 mg, methadone 5mg and 10 mg tablets to provide them in ten hospitals.
     After this first experience in Rosario, the next step to LIF is to deliver these drugs in other hospitals under the Pilot Program such as: Gastroenterología B. Udaondo, General de Agudos Dr. Tornu, Instituto de Oncología Ángel Roffo, Instituto de Investigaciones Médicas Alfredo Lanari and Dr. Baldomero Sommer.
