[Kuala Lumpur, Geneva20 September 2017]
Malaysia telah mengeluarkan lesen “kegunaan kerajaan” yang membolehkan akses kepada ubat yang mahal dan berpaten pada harga yang lebih rendah untuk merawat hepatitis C. Keputusan penting ini pastinya akan membantu lebih daripada 400,000 orang penghidap hepatitis C di Malaysia mendapatkan ubat sofosbuvir dan akan memberi kesan yang signifikan dalam usaha global untuk mendapat akses kepada rawatan yang mahal bagi penyakit yang disebabkan virus ini.“Kerajaan Malaysia tidak dapat menyediakan akses kepada rejimen rawatan yang mampu dibayar oleh masyarakat umum kerana harga sofosbuvir yang sangat mahal di Malaysia,” kata YB Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam, Menteri Kesihatan Malaysia.
