In a developing country, like India, generic medicines have an integral role in supporting the public healthcare system. Similar to the branded names, these generic drugs also need to get approval from the FDA mentioning the composition, administration dosage and drug kinetics are the same as the brand-name drugs. However, Generic medicines are typically 30%–80% cheaper than originator equivalents making them more cost-effective for the general population. Oncohiv, a generic and OTC medication distributor, offers some of the industry-leading generic medication options for a wide range of diseases in their online platform.

India is home to a significant amount of poor population who cannot access modern healthcare facilities due to its cost-prohibitive nature. India is also a country with one of the highest per capita out-of-pocket expenditures. So, generic medicines can significantly reduce the cost related to medical services and make public healthcare more affordable. At the same time, it is also a proven fact that generic drugs are not different from their branded peers in terms of dosage, route of administration, strength, quality, kinetics, and its intended use. Considering its merit for the public healthcare system, the Indian Government has taken several regulatory steps to popularize the use of generics in India. In 2008, the Government of India, through the Department of Pharmaceuticals, started a new initiative “Jan Aushadhi'' as a part of that effort. The Medical Council of India has recommended that every physician should prescribe drugs with generic names legibly and he or she shall ensure that there is a rational prescription that promotes the use of generic drugs. Oncohiv’s online generic medicine platform aligns with the same vision of affordable and accessible healthcare in India.

 

Oncohiv offers a wide variety of anti-cancer medications treating a myriad range of cancers and related health hazards including blood cancer, brain cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, leukaemia, low platelet count, hepatic encephalopathy, prostate cancer, skin cancer, psoriasis and thyroid cancer.

In the wake of the latest coronavirus outbreak, they have listed generic Ivermectin drugs used in Covid19 treatment like Iverheal 12, Iverheal 3, Iverheal 6, Iversun 12mg and Iverwon 12mg among many others to help people easily get hold of these emergency medicines. Ivermectin is a rapidly functioning medication that has been proved to effectively cure several parasitic infections. Apart from treating the condition, the drug also lowers the chance of developing any fatal aliments.

 

Oncohiv also deals in life-saving drugs like Flacigo, Hydroxychloroquine and Doxycycline along with other antibiotic medicines.
