USNS Comfort’s Partnership for the Americas humanitarian mission, sovaldi sale which began on June 15, website like this 2007, was a major component of the President Bush’s “Advancing the Cause of Social Justice in the Western Hemisphere” initiative. Comfort visited 12 Central American, South American and Caribbean nations where its embarked medical crew provided free health care services to communities in need.
