Personal comment on the major needs in Argentina which GAFFI should be addressing: Argentina's greatest needs are to improve the diagnosis of fungal infections, improve the diagnosis and stimulate the reporting of endemic mycoses (Coccidioidomycosis, Paracoccidioidomycosis, Histoplasmosis and mycetoma), and achieve access to 5FC and lower costs of generic antifungal medication.
