So my partner and I were talking about the cost of ARVs and I referred to my files and googled a few “known brands”:
|LZ+N||PHP 423.60||PHP 5,083.20||$9.63||$115.53||DOH|
|LTE||PHP 611.40||PHP 7,336.80||$13.90||$166.75||DOH|
|LT+N||PHP 407.72||PHP 4,892.64||$9.27||$111.20||DOH|
|LZ+E||PHP 466.80||PHP 5,601.60||$10.61||$127.31||DOH|
|Complera||PHP 74,800.00||PHP 897,600.00||$1,700.00||$20,400.00|
|Atripla||PHP 4,752.00||PHP 57,024.00||$108.00||$1,296.00|
Note please that Items 1-4 are bulk-procured by the DOH while Branded items 5 & 6 were googled for their retail prices.

NOT MEANT TO ENDORSE ANY OF THE ABOVE
The fact is that this has been posted to show the cost. Nothing More. Nor is this meant to justify where we are as a country.
JUST A POST.
