State Court compels the Health Department of Pernambuco to supply drugs without marketing approval
November 10, 2017

In the last few months, two lawsuits for drug supply were successful in Pernambuco. The cases refer to drugs used to treat multiple myeloma and hepatitis C. Both drugs have no marketing approval granted by the Brazilian FDA (ANVISA). According to the court, although the drugs are not registered at the ANVISA, they are legitimate in Brazil and have their efficacy attested by international authorities from several countries. This accordingly proves the absence of risk to the safety of Public Health. In this case, the Hon. Judge stressed that bureaucratic difficulties cannot prevail over constitutional right to Health and therefore compelled the Health Department of Pernambuco to gratuitously supply the drug to the patient. These decisions are part of a steady case law, including precedents from the Brazilian Supreme Court (STF). In light of the constitutional right to health, the government shall supply the drug to people with no financial conditions even if the drug is not included in the list of products provided by the Brazilian Unified Health System (SUS).

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
