Anonymous Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre Bangkok.
May 29, 2013

Hi Dr Ben,

FYI .. Anonymous Clinic of the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre Bangkok.

http://www.redcross.or.th/old/english/service/medical_clinicaids.php

It is possible for outside patients to purchase medications from the Anonymous Clinic of the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre. However, it will be necessary to have a doctors prescription with the doctors signature or authorized signature. You will also need to provide the doctors full name, his/her affiliation (hospital/clinic name), address and contact information.

The Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centres dispensary offers a choice of two regimens. Regimen A consists of original source medications, while Regimen B consists of one original source and one generic brand. The monthly cost of the medications by regimen is as follows: ( yet I believe other meds are available )

Regimen A (original source) Truvada (IBS: Germany) cost = 2,100 THB per month EFV (MSD: Australia) cost = 810 THB per month Total cost per month = 2,910 THB (approx. US$ 92.00)

Regimen A (India + original source) Ricovir-EM (India) = 1,020 THB per month EFV (MSD: Australia) cost = 810 THB per month Total cost per month = THB 1,830 THB (approx. US$ 58.00)

Medications are usually dispensed in 3-month allotments but it is possible for you to get a 6-month supply.

When you arrive at the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre, you will need to register at the Anonymous Clinic. You may then go directly to the dispensary, which is located just above the registration area, and present the prescription order and doctors contact information. The dispensary pharmacists will give you an invoice for the medications. Once you have paid the cashier for the medications, take the receipt back to the dispensary to pick up your medications.
