Why is birth control pills so expensive in South Africa?

Several factors can influence the cost of birth control pills in South Africa, as they do in many other countries. One important factor is pharmaceutical companies' pricing policies, which can result in high markups on medications. Furthermore, import costs, distribution costs, and taxes can all contribute to the overall price. In the pharmaceutical industry, a lack of competition can lead to higher prices. Furthermore, healthcare systems and medical aid coverage can differ, influencing how much people ultimately pay out of pocket.
