The drugs in question, Sovaldi and Galexos, are currently being reviewed by the province of Nova Scotia.
More than 200 people have written
letters or signed petitions calling on the province to immediately add
two new drugs to treat hepatitis C to the P.E.I. Pharmacare Formulary.
Kathleen Critch, one of those
involved in efforts to bring these drugs to P.E.I., says those efforts
are ongoing and others are expected to add their voice to the call for
provincial authorities to act.
Critch, whose mother has hepatitis C, says Islanders deserve access to these drugs.
