Where medication for non-communicable diseases (NCD’s) is concerned, many Dominicans are not being compliant. This means that they are not taking their medications prescribed by doctors.
That’s according to Acting Coordinator of the Health Promotion Department of the Ministry of Health Mignon Rolle-Shillingford, who says this is putting additional pressure on the country’s health system.
Shillingford says some persons are turning to alternative medicines, but even that does not seem to be working well enough.
