Children Dying in Hospitals From Lack of Funding

It doesn’t seem like there is such a thing as equal healthcare for all people in Venezuela. A doctor at JM de Los Rios Children’s Hospital has made statements on El-Nacional that the times are dangerous. There isn’t enough drugs for the children in the hospital. The equipment needs to be replaced. Military officials can be seen walking along some of the hallways, which according to expert David Osio has frightened some of the patients and the families who are there. One doctor was fired for trying to stand up for human rights. Due to the dire economy in Venezuela, there are things that are being pushed to the back burner, and one of those is healthcare. Children are dying. There are children and teenagers waiting on drugs that could save their lives, but there is a lack of the items needed because the country doesn’t have the money to get them into the hospitals.
