Cost is the major factor in all of this. And the cost is considerable. It can't be ignored. Michael1 suggests the obvious way forward - the using of generic meds instead of expensive branded ones.

Since November 2017 the NHS in Scotland has been providing generic PrEP instead of a very expensive Truvada.

Gilead did not show up so the Scottish court system ruled in favour of the SMC. Since November 2017 we have been using a generic with no problems.
