hello, my mam have a HCV und she have genotyp 1b, She need harvoni but we can not pay 90.000 dollar price for this medicine. She leaves in Ukraine and she cannot buy this in Ukraine. What option do i have that to help ma mam? Can you help me please? Thank you.
India + another 90 low-income countries have made an agreement with Gilead (producer of Harvoni) to allow them to make their own Harvoni, which will be 100% the same thing, but not branded as Harvoni.
They will be allowed to sell it at a lower price, but will have to pay 7% commission for each sale to Gilead.
India will launch this Harvoni in November/December this year, and will probably cost around 1000$ for a bottle. Your mother will either need 3 or 6 bottles, depending on her condition. Harvoni also works with Ribavirin to increase it's chances. So, if you think you have 6000$, then buy 6 bottles of Harvoni (24 weeks treatment) and some Ribavirin. Otherwise, go with 12 weeks of Harvoni (3 bottles) but then you absolutely, 100% have to add Ribavirin too.
The medicine is 90 dollars you say in the Ukraine you can call the drug manufacturer. Look up who mailed it an call them tell them your mom can't afford it and needs it . They hav programs that help pay for meds then maybe you could ship it to her. If you have anymore questions don't hesitate to ask.
