REMEDIAR PROGRAM IS AN EQUITABLE AND EFFICIENT ANSWER, BECAUSE:

  • It guarantees the access to medicines
  • It is financially sustainable
  • It is technically consistent
  • It is federal
  • It is an adequate answer to emergency
  • It promotes a lasting reform
  • It allows efficient purchases
  • It has a high redistributive impact
  • It has a strict evaluation and monitoring mechanism
  • It promotes the rational use of drugs
slide9

JOINT NEGOTIATION OF ARV PRICES

  • The process has the support of Andean Health Organism (ORAS/CONHU), World Health Organization/Pan American Health Organization (WHO/PAHO) and UNAIDS.
  • Doctors Without Borders (MSF), International Red Cross and Latin American Network of People Living with HIV/AIDS,were present as observers.
  • The higherpricereduction obtained was 92% and the minimum was 10%
  • Potential joint savings for the participating countries (10 countries), could be around $148 US million dollars (76% of regional ARV expenditure)
  • These substantial savings will annually allow that 150,000 more people living with AIDS in the region to be assisted.
