Government cancer center to reduce cancer meds costs by half

The National Cancer Institute “Rosa Emilia Sánchez Pérez de Tavares” (INCART) will be offering state of the art services for integrated cancer management, diagnosis and analysis. INCART will also manufacture anti-cancer medications, using a nuclear medicine laboratory equipped with a cyclotron and other state-of-the-art equipment.

A report in 7 Dias indicates that the new facility will make it possible to sell cancer drugs at steeply discounted prices. Incart will accept local health insurance plans (ARS) as well as the government health plan, Senasa.

The drug production starts 8 August 2017, when INCART plans to inaugurate the areas of drug manufacturing , laboratory and patient management with the completion of the installation of equipment valued at a cost of EUR17 million, plus an investment of RD$150 million in infrastructure or civil works where the equipment has been installed.

The announcement was made by Francisco Pagán, director of the Office of Engineers and Supervisors of State Works (OISOE), during a tour of the center with Incart director Dr. Luisa González Pons to supervise the installation of the modern equipment.
