Writer: APIRADEE TREERUTKUARKUL

Free flu drugs are being made available today at state and private clinics as part of the Public Health Ministry’s latest effort to combat the spread of type-A (H1N1).

The ministry hopes the antiviral drug supply at clinics will solve problems of delayed treatment which can prove fatal in some severe flu cases.

Thirty-one clinics in Bangkok have been certified by the ministry to prescribe oseltamivir phosphate (the generic form of Tamiflu) to flu patients. More clinics in the capital and other provinces will be authorised this week if they meet requirements set by the ministry’s guidelines on flu drug prescription.

Other countries like the United States, Canada and Australia – they are using a much more targeted approach.”
