Abstract

"At least six million people are in desperate need of medicines to treat HIV/AIDS and related infections, including TB and malaria. Without such treatment they will die. Generic versions of these medicines are being produced at low prices in developing countries such as Thailand, India, Brazil and South Africa but in order to protect their powerful pharmaceutical companies, industrialised nations are making it increasingly difficult for poor countries to import them."
