Bengaluru: The Cabinet on Thursday May 12 decided to provide free medicines to patients suffering from haemophilia.

Madhuswamy said that according to estimates, one in every 5,000 boys have haemophilia, and it is estimated that there are 4,000 to 5,000 patients suffering from this disease in the State. As the treatment is expensive, the State Government together with National Health Mission has decided to provide medicines for free, he said.

Minister added that Rs. 29 Crore has been approved for drug purchase. Also, Rs. 15 Crore has been approved for purchase of drugs for thalassemia and sickle cell anaemia, he informed.
