Life Saving Drugs Program Reform

January 30, 2018

RVA is pleased to welcome the Turnbull Government’s announcement that ended the long-standing uncertainty regarding the Review of the Life Saving Drugs Program (LSDP). We commend the Government’s commitment to retain and improve the LSDP, drawing upon the recommendations of the Review.

As many of you are aware, this has been a long and challenging issue. RVA thanks everyone involved for their persistence and dedication – you’ve all played an integral role in making the future brighter for rare disease patients in Australia!
