Dear Neil,

Good to read about the new release of Carbetocin. My only concern is the high cost of Carbetocin. Developing countries cannot afford it.



HIFA profile: Catherine Kamau is a registered nurse from Kenya. She is currently country programmes coordinator for VSI (Venture Strategies Innovations) a USA non-profit NGO which deals with reproductive health in developing countries. She works closely with the community and her area of interest is maternal and child health; HIV/AIDS delivery; nutrition; and immuisation. She is also pursuing a degree in public health and is passionate on child matters. She is currently not convinced that her country is doing enough to help children understand health issues especially chronic diseases; and there are many orphans who are yet to know of their HIV status. Catherine is also concerned that up to 65% of patients don't know their rights and as such go through a lot of problems in the hands of the so called 'medics'.
