Des défenseurs d'un traitement contestent un brevet pour un nouveau médicament contre l'hépatite C
Date:11/24/2013

C vivant dans des pays à revenus faibles et moyens, un tel prix rendra ce traitement inaccessible pour la plupart des patients.

« Sans une concurrence des génériques en provenance de l'Inde, il faudra attendre trop longtemps avant que les entreprises détentrices de brevet abaissent leurs prix », selon Tahir Amin, directeur de l'Initiative for Medicines, Access & Knowledge. « Ce médicament est une variante de composés connus, et le droit indien ne permettra pas à une entreprise de réaliser des milliards de dollars grâce à lui ».

Qualifiée de « bombe virale à retardement » par l'Organisation mondiale de la santé, hépatite C chronique touche, selon les estimations, 170 millions de personnes dans le monde, dont 12 millions en Inde. Cette maladie infecte près de 4 millions de personnes chaque année et est à l'origine de 350 000 décès tous les ans.

Open Society Foundations aide les groupes de patients et les défenseurs de traitements à faciliter l'accès au traitement de l'hépatite C dans de nombreux pays à moyens revenus, dont la Géorgie, l'Ukraine, le Vietnam, la Thaïlande, le Brésil et la Russie, où leur prix rend inabordables les traitements mêmes actuels contre l'hépatite C.

Open Society Foundations œuvre en faveur de démocraties dynamiques et tolérantes dont les gouvernements sont responsables envers leurs citoyens. Collaborant avec les communautés locales dans plus de 100 pays, Open Society Foundations encourage la justice et les droits de l'homme, la liberté d'expression et l'accès à la santé publique et à l'éducation.
