Ukraine Activists Warn Of Impending HIV Treatment Shortages

Agence France-Presse: Ukraine faces looming HIV treatment shortage
“A group of Ukrainians infected with HIV warned on Wednesday that thousands could soon perish because the war-torn country was running out of treatment for the virus responsible for AIDS. … Activists link the problem to a law adopted last year allowing drug suppliers to receive full prepayment for medication they would not be required to deliver for up to six months…” (Shylenko, 5/27).
