Department of Health
Kaftrio has been a life changing drug for Cystic Fibrosis sufferers, and I want to see it made available to everyone who needs it.
The HSE has statutory responsibility for decisions on pricing and reimbursement of medicines under the community drugs schemes, in accordance with the Health (Pricing and Supply of Medical Goods) Act 2013.
I have been advised by the HSE that engagement with Vertex Pharmaceuticals is ongoing, which I hope can be brought to a satisfactory conclusion for everyone.
