Pakistan has the second highest rate of Hepatitis C in the world. The United Nations sent medicine for the treatment. According to a regulatory authority in Pakistan, medicines provided consist of Sofosbuvir and Daclatasvir. Due to them the treatment of Hepatitis C is possible but the government is banning these. The problem here is that medicine is expensive and poor people cannot buy it. There was a market previously allowing them to buy cheaper medicines but it has since then been flooded. The government is exporting drugs to other countries, which isn’t bad, but banning such live-saving drugs is bad too and very wrong. 

It is a request to the government and concerned authorities to take serious action to solve this problem.
