“Minsa indicated that a commission was also created to elaborate the Guidelines and the National Plan of Prevention, Diagnosis, Integral Attention, Treatment and Rehabilitation of Rare and Orphan High-Cost Diseases”, Sputnik News said.
Both commissions will be integrated by professionals from eight offices attached to the Ministry of Health, and will have the task of providing treatment to patients with rare or orphan diseases, as well as promoting “greater inter-institutional participation forming an articulated network” to address this problem, the aforementioned website informed.
In Peru, a disease is considered rare when its incidence does not exceed 7.69 cases per 100,000 people and is estimated as an orphan when it is not included in the state health policies.
