Severance-Ilsan Hospital fellows donated money for cancer patients suffering from economic distress with a non-paid new anticancer drug.
Yonsei Medical Center and National Health Insurance Ilsan Hospital have joined together to help cancer patients in need economically. Three hundred thirty-five full-time fellows at Yonsei Medical Center and Ilsan Hospital collected 8 million KRW in donations to help patients who cannot pay for the non-paid anticancer treatment due to the no coverage of health insurance. The purpose of the donation was that the fellows wanted to use this money for patients who choose existing anticancer drugs without any options due to the burden of non-paid anticancer medicines and who are overwhelmed by high treatment costs. Yonsei Medical Center fellows try to provide the best treatment for patients with great responsibility and ensure that all patients have equal rights to economic resources. This aims to help the poor and the vulnerable have equal rights to resources, such as medical treatments (SDG 1.4).
