Venezuela's National Superintendent of Costs and Prices (Sundecop), Karlín Granadillo, said on Thursday that information regarding the production of drugs by the pharmaceutical sector is subject to review as well as the real needs of the population.

"We must find out the real need for taking some drugs, for instance, how publicity influences consumption of some drugs," Granadillo said.   

"It is important to be reasonable in drugs domestic consumption," she noted.

Granadillo remarked that the assessment aims at determining whether some costs that should be covered by the industry are transferred to prices. "Companies must cover all their production costs," the superintendent added.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
