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.
If you’re interested in getting your own generic PrEP for 50 euros or less, we advise you to read our information in FAQ4 about generic PrEP https://www.prepnu.nl/en/faqs/ . If you have more questions then you are welcome to join our weekly workshop.
PrEPnu started a weekly free PrEP workshop service in the centre of Amsterdam. We will answer all your questions about PrEP-use and generic medication. We’ll also assist you in your choice for independent PrEP-use. We give you friendly, non-judgemental professional advice.Last updated 03/11/2017
