HIFA Quotation: 
So whatever doctor prescribe is based on availability of nearby private pharmacy. Big pharmaceutical companies give a lot bribe to doctors asking them to prescribe their drugs. A recent research have shown a huge difference in price of same medicine brought by different companies. Here patient die not due to lack of primary health care but because of expensive drugs which they can't afford.
