The Venezuelan American Medical Association (VAMA) would like to express our support of today’s healthcare and human rights march  spearheaded by our colleagues in Venezuela.

 In light of recent events and given the social and humanitarian crisis our country is facing, the Venezuelan American Medical Association (VAMA) wants to express our complete support to our colleagues in Venezuela.

Venezuela is currently experiencing the worst healthcare crisis in history, with a chronic shortage of medications and medical supplies in pharmacies and hospitals, which has resulted in the resurgence of diseases thought to be eradicated for years. 

People are dying from simple infections and other preventable and easy to treat diseases. The lack of resources and the terriblesanitary conditions have played a significant role in the increase in mortality. Healthcare institutions are in dire conditions which makes this scenario nearly catastrophic.
