Domestic medicines are seven times more expensive than Indian generic medicines, and AIDS patients are cheated out of their medicines.
In China, 80,000 people are newly found to be infected with AIDS every year. They can receive free national medicines for life. However, due to side effects, some patients choose to buy medicines across borders or buy them on behalf of others. In China, a bottle of 2880 yuan is sold, while generic drugs in India only cost 400 yuan. But the drug market is mixed, some people buy fake drugs, some people are cheated out of drug fees.
