ABSTRACT
The article reports that the large number of HIV-positive people in low- and middle- income countries lacks access even to relatively simple medications. Moreover, some countries with high burdens of AIDS have poor and unequal access to important drugs for any condition. In the poorest parts of Africa and Asia, more than 50 percent of the population do not have access to even the most basic essential medicines.
