Abstract Rapid medication management for patients infected with HIV, HCV or HBV is key in optimizing a more favourable clinical response, in terms of morbidity, mortality, quality-of-life and reduced risk of transmission. If a drug is expensive, access to treatment for an uninsured patient with limited resources can be a hurdle that leads to forgoing healthcare for economic reasons. The buyers' club's objective is to provide logistics and/or financial assistance to a patient aiming to import qualitative generics for his personal use at an affordable price oversea. The drug is purchased on the internet.
