29 000 to 60 000 GEL per year will be allocated from the Tbilisi budget to finance one citizen diagnosed with breast cancer. Such a statement made today Mayor of the capital.
“The program funds HER-2-positive, locally prevalent (Stage I-III), and expensive metastatic breast cancer medications.
This is a very important program, which has significantly eased the financial burden on women and their families in need and has relieved most of them of property sales and serious credit obligations. It should be noted that the price of one ampoule of medicine is up to GEL 5,000. In some cases, the combined price of two different medicines for one transfusion exceeds GEL 9,000”, - said Kakha Kaladze.
