Chairman of the Commission for the Management of Medical Supply Service, Tahir Bakhir said that medication for leishmaniasis disease will be available by next week.

"The Medical Supply Service is working to provide the medicine required through the International Health Organization (WHO), which could take some time," Al-Tahir said in a press conference, clarifying that the alternative is to provide treatment from the external market through communication with pharmaceutical companies.

He also noted that the total amount of doses needed for treatment may not exceed 5 thousand syringes.

Bakhir said that leishmania cure is not always available in pharmacies or in drug company's warehouses because it is usually manufactured to order.
