Guidance Recommendations
The Ministry of Health’s Drug Advisory Committee has not recommended listing emicizumab on the Medication Assistance Fund (MAF) in line with its registered indication as prophylaxis for patients with haemophilia A with or without factor VIII inhibitors to prevent or reduce bleeding episodes, due to unfavourable cost-effectiveness compared with subsidised alternatives at the price proposed by the manufacturer.
