Seventy of the World’s Poorest Countries Get Discounted AIDS Drugs

People living with AIDS in seventy of the world’s poorest countries got a break this year from high drug prices after prices, on some of the most crucial drugs, were lowered by Indian pharmaceutical companies.

Cocktails of AIDS drugs, such as first-line treatments containing the drugs tenofovir and efavirenz, and second-line regimens containing atazanavir and ritonavir that sell for nearly $12,000 or more in rich nations, are now available in many poor nations for less than $200.
