Wow Joy! Good on Jakarta! Although, I have the same concerns expressed by Joe in the comments on the article. He asks, "Is it a good idea to publicise this? Inodnesian police and customs will appreciate this heads up."

Yes Matt, I share those concerns, especially since names and positions are mentioned.

With 3 million living with Hep C and even the price of generics out of range for most, let's hope Indonesia's National Insurance lists the new meds asap.

While there will be some risks associated with the publicity I suspect they made the decision to to go public via the AAP as a means of spreading the word and generating additional support for their/our cause much like a couple of Tasmanians did in the Australian media last year.

Here's a link to additional reading about generic HCV treatment in Asia:

Thanks Gaj.

Yes, those wonderful Tasmanians who stuck out their necks for all of us. Eternally grateful. Now more are taking risks to help others, and it will continue to spread. Because people care about people.

“Right now many of our community members are surviving HIV, but dying from hepatitis C,” says Aditya Wardhana, executive director of the Indonesia AIDS Coalition.

Feeling very sad about that.
