Patients suffering from Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I), along with their families, gathered in front of the Food and Drug Administration on Sunday, September 13, protesting being denied access to medicine. This rally was held in the Iranian capital Tehran.

“My son has taken medicine for about six years. However, we no longer receive his medication for about two years now and we were finally told that my child would have to be tested to confirm his illness. Now, after two years, they still have not given us the result. This is while, in addition to the approval of my child's doctor, he even has clinical signs of this illness,” said a mother in this gathering.

It is worth noting that due to the lack of allocating currency to the people’s medical needs, patients have faced difficulties in procuring their necessary medicine and the lack of continuous medicine has deteriorated their illness.
