Anti-HIV combination drug for Indonesia

Thailand’s Government Pharmaceutical Organisation has signed an agreement to supply antiviral drugs to its Indonesian counterpart for three years. They also announced plans to export ARVs to other countries including China and South Africa.

The drug supply worth 84 million baht (£1.2 million) was in accordance with the public health cooperation pact agreed by the 10 Asian nations. The first delivery of the drugs – GPO-VIR, Lanavir, Anti-vir and Fluzoral – was expected at the end of this month. They will be used to treat between 80,000 and 120,000 people.

Public Health Minister Sudarat Keyuraphan and her Indonesian counterpart Dr Achmad Sujudi presided over the signing of the agreement.
