We had to wait for a long time, but as of com­ing Mon­day, Octo­ber 30, gener­ic PrEP will be avail­able for one-sixth of the price that Phar­ma giant Gilead still charges for Tru­va­da™. With a doctor’s pre­scrip­tion you can get PrEP from San­doz in all the Plus-phar­ma­cies in the Nether­lands. The price for a bot­tle of 30 pills will be €99,50.

Still too expen­sive
PrEP­nu is hap­py with this step, but believes that almost 100 euros for 30 pills is still too high. PrEP should be cov­ered by health insur­ance but as long as this is not the case, a com­mer­cial price shouldn’t be high­er than 50 euros.
