Dr Dzulkefly thanks MSF for supporting Malaysia’s move on Hepatitis C drug


KUALA LUMPUR: In a tweet, Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad (pic) thanked international medical humanitarian organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) for its support and solidarity with Malaysia’s stance on its use of compulsory licensing (CL) to gain access to generic versions of a Hepatitis C drug.

Malaysia has been facing pressure from pharmaceutical companies and their political allies ever since it used CL to gain access to generic versions of a Hepatitis C drug in 2017.
