Great regret has generated in the health sector the death of Dr. Gisselle Vásquez, who directed the High Cost Medicines Program of the Ministry of Public Health.
His death occurred while receiving medical attention in a hospital in the United States, where he had been hospitalized for about two months suffering from cancer.
Gisselle, her coworkers, friends, journalists in the area of health and those who knew her, defined her as a great human being, who was always willing to help others.
Dr. Vasquez was known in the institution as an honest person and dedicated to her work.
He has been running the High Cost Medicines Program since 2014. There are still no details on when his remains will be brought to the country.
