Parents Write Open Letter to Health Minister

A number of parents have written an open letter to Public Health Minister Laurette Onkelinx, following the decision to refund the cost of very expensive medicine for Victor, 7-year old boy with a rare disease that affects his immune system. The letter highlights the need for numerous cases in Belgium that also need this special treatment. The Minister’s office stated that the Belgian health authorities pay back over 60 types of drugs used, “more than most other countries.”

X-Poll Question: Does the Health Minister need to find a new way to assess cases for children, or is the current system fair?
