Hysteria about drugs and harm minimisation. It's always the same old story

"No matter how impressive the evidence of benefits, or how weak the evidence of serious side effects or how badly a strategy is needed, new harm reduction strategies are always greeted the same way: with relentless hostility. Debates about harm reduction always follow the same pattern. Hysterical fears are confidently asserted as if proven beyond doubt while potential benefits, often based on considerable research and experience, are dismissed or ignored."

HIV prevention drug Truvada won't be subsidised in Australia

Truvada, an expensive breakthrough drug that prevents people from getting HIV won't be funded by taxpayers in Australia this year, the nation's drug funding panel has ruled. A Department of Health spokeswoman said the PBAC understood "this is an important new prevention medication for HIV", but decided the price set by the drug's sponsor, Gilead Sciences, was too high and a proposal to limit subsidy to a small subset of the "at risk" group was not feasible. "In its deliberations the PBAC indicated a substantial price reduction would be needed to make Truvada available for PrEP for the whole 'at risk' population, but noted that Truvada for PrEP could represent value for money in the broader population at a substantially lower price," the spokeswoman said.
