New $1 Per Day Breakthrough Generic Drug For HIV+ Children — Not In The U.S.

Indian generic drug manufacturer Cipla announced a new medication for children called Quadrimune, which will cost about $1 a day.

Quadrimune “comes in strawberry-flavored granules the size of grains of sugar that can be mixed with milk or sprinkled on baby cereal,” reports the New York Times.

Winnie Byanyima, the new executive director of UNAIDS, explained the breakthrough:

This is excellent news for all children living with H.I.V. We have been eagerly waiting for child-friendly medicines that are easy to use and good to taste.
