Buenos Aires, Argentina (Argentine Republic)
DIABETES PATIENTS DEMONSTRATE FOR GUARANTEED INSULIN SUPPLIES.
Diabetes patients demonstrate in front of the Casa Rosada presidential
palace for the government to guarantee insulin supplies running short
in local pharmacies after the peso was devalued, January 10, 2002. With
drug companies hoarding supplies to avoid currency risks after the
devaluation, pharmacies ran low on life-saving drugs like insulin and
long lines of patients formed outside some clinics. REUTERS/Marcos
