The National Health Fund (NHF) recently reaffirmed its commitment to assist patients with lupus through subsidies for medication, at a function to officially mark the addition of lupus to the NHF's Individual Benefits Programme.

As of April 30, 2019, NHF cardholders have been able to access drugs for lupus at a reduced cost through the NHF's Pharmacy Provider network, of which there are over 415 participating pharmacies across the island.

Dr Desiree Tulloch-Reid, president of the Lupus Foundation of Jamaica (LFJ), said: "Persons with lupus face many challenges, from the condition, its complications, and the challenge with gaining access to the right care and affordable treatment".

"We (LFJ) would like to express congratulations and our appreciation to the leadership and staff of NHF who have made today possible by their efforts," she said.
