The Poor and needy Diabetics of Taiz have raised complaints to the health authorities in the city for the absence of Insulin medicine, namely Mixtard.
Poor patients used to be dispensed through monthly cards in Taiz before the distribution was delayed and halted, resulting in the suffering of hundreds of patients, who are under the threat of impending death because of their inability to purchase the medicine from the market.
The patience had requested from the Minister of Health and Population as well as the International Health Organizations in order to resume the distribution of the medicine for the poor and needy on monthly and regularly so that they can avoid the impending danger on their lives.
