109 Medicines and Vaccines Now in Development for HIV/AIDS
Date:12/1/2008

or Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 1 million Americans were living with HIV infection at the end of 2006.

From 2000 to 2007, America's pharmaceutical research companies contributed more than $9.2 billion to improve health care in the developing world, according to the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations.

The projects they supported included building clinics to treat patients with HIV/AIDS, education and prevention programs, initiatives to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV, and donations of medicines for AIDS and related diseases. A number of companies also provide AIDS drugs at reduced prices in many countries.

"With HIV/AIDS medicines, a disease that was once a virtual death sentence can now be controlled and treated as if it were a chronic disease," adds Tauzin. "And the new medicines our scientists are working on right now bring hope for even more promising results in the future."

"While researchers are making exciting progress in the search for new treatments for HIV/AIDS, these efforts are wasted if the medicines that are developed don't get to the patients who need them," said Senior Vice President Ken Johnson.

Help is available to patients in need through the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (PPA), a program sponsored by America's pharmaceutical research companies. To date, the PPA has helped more than 5 million patients nationwide. Since its launch in April 2005, the PPA bus tour has visited all 50 states and more than 2,000 cities.
