French health minister Madame Marisol Touraine is again questioned by the Deputies of the National Assembly, in relation to the effectiveness of the treatment practiced by the Institut Chari & Syringomyelia & Scoliosis de Barcelona.

Publicado por el 20 June, 2016

Last October the Deputy Monsieur Yves Jégo addressed an official letter to the Minister of Social Affairs, Health and Women’s Rights Madame Marisol Touraine, informing about the treatment that is practiced in the Institut Chiari & Syringomyelia & Scoliosis of Barcelona.

The French Deputy directly emphasizes in his letter how the option of one treatment or another can save lives.

We believe that for the first time the focus is on questions of the health policy and not only on the economic aspects.

The brief concludes with a request: while this treatment is not implemented in France, it requests that the French Social Security can cover the expenses of the patients treated at Institut Chiari & Syringomyelia & Scoliosis of Barcelona.

From our Foundation we believe that this type of political initiatives will help patients around the world to receive the most appropriate treatment.

We attach the full document in French.
