HARARE - A partnership by the National AIDS Council (NAC), NatPharm and some pharmarcies in the private sector has resulted in the drop in prices of anti-retroviral drugs (ARVs) that will now be accessed for US$17 down from an average US$55 currently prevailing. The development comes after NAC launched the increased access to treatment plan, which will see them procure ARVs in bulk at the manufacturing rate.The drugs will then be distributed by NatPharm and licensed pharmacies in the private sector.
