Argentinian Province To Hand Out Free Viagra (But Only After Holy Week)

SANTA FE – The Argentinian province of Sante Fe will be handing out a million Viagra tablets – free of charge – but only after Easter is over, according to La Gaceta.

“They’ll be available but of course there will be necessary controls so that they won’t be abused,” assured provincial Minister for Health Miguel Cappiello.

Speaking on the morning TV show El Primero de la Mañana, Cappiello said the tablets were too expensive for most people. He added that “some people don’t believe the little blue pills are essential to life, but I believe they are,” according to La Capital.

"We are providing medicines for other diseases. In this case, six or seven of every 100 people have diabetes, and one of the main complications is erectile sexual dysfunction," said Cappiello.

The scheme will allow patients in the public health system to be able to access the proper drug, says La Nacion, instead of seeking out homemade – and potentially dangerous – versions.

The famous tablets, whose pharmaceutical name is Sildenafil citrate, have already been produced in the Industrial Pharmaceutical Laboratory (LIF), which is controlled by the provincial government, reports La Razon.

The distribution will only begin after Easter, after the end of Holy Week festivities.
