Fire in the Blood Programme 2017

by Dylan Mohan Gray Border Lines

“The only reason we are dying is because we are poor.” The succinct words of an AIDS activist from South Africa express a fact that the world is hardly aware of. Following the development of antiretroviral drugs, HIV in the West no longer equals death. However, for the people in developing countries, these drugs, made by large pharmaceutical companies, remain prohibitively expensive. Hope grew when India began producing a cheaper generic alternative, but the pharmaceutical industry, supported by a policy that refuses to look beyond its own nose, is seeking legal action to stop the distribution of these drugs. FIRE IN THE BLOOD documents the fight against the inhumane blocking of affordable life-saving drugs.
