While decidedly after the fact, this is what played for me when RWHN agreed to be banned:

If this is to be believed, there is now a pill that can cure 90% of people with hepatitis C. Not "treat". CURE.
The catch is that the pill costs $1000

I know someone who works for a company that is working on something similar.  The company has been working on a single pill for over fifteen years, spending hundreds of millions of dollars of private investors' money, and employing hundreds of people around the globe, to the point of developing unique manufacturing facilities for it, without making a profit in all that time.

Hell, a $1,000 pill wouldn't make them break even, let alone a profit.

Well, it is $84 grand for the full course. Hopefully there's a break-even point somewhere in there.

Yeah, it seems that there is.

But Andrew Hill, a researcher in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Liverpool, says $84,000 per cure is too much, based on his estimate of Gilead's cost to produce the drug.

"Even when we were very conservative [with our estimate], the cost of a course of these treatments would be on the order of $150 to $250 per person," Hill says. He questions whether the $84,000 price tag represents "a fair profit."

Hill estimated the cost of producing sofosbuvir by comparing it to similar antiviral drugs used to treat HIV, which cost about a $1 per gram to make.

Quote
Graham thinks Gilead should factor the larger market size into the drugs' price.

She notes that Gilead paid more than $11 billion to acquire a smaller company that developed sofosbuvir. She acknowledges that Gilead should be allowed to recoup that investment.

On the other hand, "you only need about 150,000 people to recover that cost," Graham says. "And so, if you're treating 2 million people, once you have recovered your cost, then I think it's ... I don't want to say it's unfair, but it does start feeling more exploitative."

This, I would agree with.
