Aifa, Sovaldi at the lowest price in the EU, 37 thousand euros

“We pay sofosbuvir” – a drug for the treatment of hepatitis C – “37,000 euros as an admission price. Several studies show that at a cost of 40,000 euros it is convenient to eradicate the disease”. This was stated to Adnkronos Salute by the director general of the Italian Medicines Agency (Aifa), Luca Pani, in Rome on the sidelines of a congress on corruption in healthcare, organized by the Catholic University. “We – adds Pani – have negotiated a discount of 17%. As we promised – concludes Pani – we closed at the much lower average price in Europe”.
