Colombia's Minister of Health, Guillermo Alfonso Jaramillo, is faced with a vote of no-confidence motion presented by opposition factions, Radical Change and Democratic Centre. The opposition alleges that Jaramillo has failed to fulfil his constitutional and regulatory duties, made inappropriate remarks about COVID-19 vaccines, and not effectively addressed the shortage of medicines or delays in payments to Health Promotion Entities (EPS).
