Venezuelans With HIV Face Medication Shortages, Collapsing Health Care System

Washington Post: A Venezuelan woman had grown used to shortages. Then her HIV drugs ran out.
“…Already living with the world’s highest inflation rate and an increasingly repressive government, Venezuelans are facing an imploding health system. … [S]hortages of medication, the lack of tests, and the disintegrating economy, experts say, appear to be sharply worsening the HIV crisis now, making the country an outlier in a region that is generally making gains against the virus…” (Faiola/Krygier, 9/6).
