Advances in medical science have made it possible for people with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) to lead a relatively normal life. This is thanks to Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) which, although it does not eliminate the virus from the patient’s body, manages to control it or suppress the replication of the disease.
In this sense, North Life Pharma is distributing unbranded antiretrovirals, i.e., as a generic product and also under the brand name of the same company. It should be noted that these products are manufactured under the highest quality standards with specialized manufacturers. Likewise, to date, the company has delivered high volumes of these medicines to different Latin American countries.
The company points out that, “these products help in the treatment against the virus with different mechanisms of action, so that, although HIV continues to be a chronic disease, it is no longer as lethal as before. It should be mentioned that, for each type of patient and phase, a specific medicine can be recommended depending on the doctor’s prescription, who will assess each patient’s situation, which is why frequent clinical check-ups are important.”
Another interesting and important advantage of the antiretroviral medicines distributed by North Life Pharma is that they are very attractively priced, making them available to many people. This is because they are generic medicines, but they have an equivalent function to branded or innovative medicines. These medicines, although it will depend on the situation of each patient, are of periodic use and are usually tablets that the patient must take for life, as in any other chronic disease such as hypertension or diabetes.
Finally, it should be noted that ART is quite widespread in the world, because it has become to date the best option for people with HIV, which is why the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) is supporting the health systems of the member countries with the supply of these medicines.
North Life Pharma stated that, “these products help in the treatment against the virus with different mechanisms of action, so that, although HIV continues to be a chronic disease, it is no longer as lethal as before.”
December 1st is World AIDS Day, which is used to raise awareness and socialize the population about this disease.
