HOYMEDIA, S.A AND AIDS DRUGS DIRECT DELIVER WAYS FOR AIDS AND HIV SUFFERERS TO LOWER COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH OBTAINING CRITICAL MEDICATIONS
TAMPA, FL - Sept. 2, 2003 (Send2Press Newswire) -- Hoymedia, S.A
announced today the formal launch of AIDS Drugs Direct
(www.AIDSdrugsdirect.com), a cost-effective alternative for those
suffering from AIDS and HIV to obtain brand-name life-saving medications
at a fraction of U.S. prices.
Based in Tampa Florida, and Cape Town, South Africa, AIDS Drugs Direct
provides HIV/AIDS medications at savings up to 60% less than even highly
publicized Canadian Pharmacies. AIDS Drugs Direct began operation locally
in April 2003 and has seen a large demand for HIV/AIDS Drugs from all over
the U.S. with its new membership program.
AIDS Drugs Direct has a $79.00 per month membership that grants access to
the deeply discounted Medications. There are no other requirements.
Delivery to any U.S. address takes 21 days. A customer care team is
available for assistance between 9am and 6pm ET. Major companies including
Abbot Labs, Dupont, Glaxo Wellcome, Hoffman_LaRoche, Merck & Co., and
Smithkline manufacture products offered to members. All brands and
manufacturers are clearly noted on the site for confidence in the drugs
"The HIV/AIDS drugs are manufactured by the same U.S. brand name
companies, but are sold at a fraction of the cost in South Africa," says
Rodney Sydnor, founder and Executive Officer of AIDS Drugs Direct. "The
same quality standards and ingredients are applied. The actual savings are
more significant when compared to U.S. pharmacies. For example, Combivir
(150/300), 60 tablets, retails here in the states at $679, but is only
$179 for AIDS Drugs Direct members. There are more name brand drugs listed
on our website that further illustrate these types of immense savings."
"ADAP, the AIDS Drug Assistance Program, is funded by both the Federal and
State governments to pay for HIV/AIDS drugs for those individuals that
meet certain income requirements. Unfortunately the ADAP programs are
facing deficits and mounting 'waiting lists' due to the economic downturn.
AIDS Drugs Direct is an affordable alternative to potentially going
without these important medications."
"There is a lot of negative press for Web-based pharmacies right now, due
to the 'spam' problem, fly-by-night operations, and crooks," adds Sydnor.
"We don't send 'spam,' and we offer true value for both those with
insurance coverage, and those who may have had their insurance cancelled,
and are only able to purchase the expensive drugs they need to stay alive
through the financial support of their friends and loved ones."
"Our goal has been to find solutions for those in need of even more
drastic savings than possible when buying meds from Canada, and I feel
AIDS Drugs Direct purchases drugs exclusively from pharmacies that are
active members of The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy(R)
(NABP). NABP is the only professional association that represents the
state boards of pharmacy in all 50 United States, the District of
Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, New Zealand, eight
Canadian provinces, three Australian states, and South Africa.
Additionally, AIDS Drugs Direct purchases direct from manufacturers.
