‘Yes’ to a different kind of recession

Health Minister Philippos Patsalis

Adopting the motto “We say yes to Recession” the Cyprus Anti-rheumatism association on Friday launched its annual awareness campaign on rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases, taking place between May 8 and 17.

The motto stresses the positive impact on rheumatism patients of the recession of painful symptoms, Health Minister Philippos Patsalis said in his address to mark the event.

Patsalis said that timely diagnosis of rheumatic diseases and proper care led to recession of the disease and that his ministry was steadily improving services and implementing new methods for the benefit of patients.

He said that his ministry included a rheumatologist in the new drugs price-control committee and it was also cooperating with a children’s rheumatologist who is examining patients four times per year.

“Quality of life continues to be our priority as well as facilitating access to care and treatments,” Patsalis said.
