Abstract

The aim of our study was to conduct a pharmacoeconomic and cost analysis of the therapeutic use of anti-HIV drugs.

Material and methods. The study was based on the documented medical histories of HIV-infected patients; it also incorporated the data from the state-sponsored auctions and contracts for drug purchase, as well as the information from the website poisklekarstv.ru with recommendations for Moscow pharmacies. Both statistical and analytical approaches were used.

Results. We found that all drugs needed for the treatment of patients with HIV infection are available in Russia. These drugs appear in the updated list of the treatment standards approved for domestic use in Russia.

Conclusion. The difference between the government-sponsored prices and the retail prices of these medications has an impact on the costs of ant-HIV therapy.
