Date:12/23/2013

BURLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources, one of the world's leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and healthcare issues, finds that Brazil's National Health System (SUS) currently provides coverage for 22 drugs that are distributed free of charge to more than 300,000 HIV-infected patients. Covered drugs are provided free of charge to eligible patients under the Strategic Program for Pharmaceutical Assistance (CESAF), managed at state and municipal levels. Drugs not covered by the SUS, such as the fixed-dose combinations (FDCs) Gilead's Truvada, GlaxoSmithKline's Kivexa and GlaxoSmithKline's Triovir, must be paid for out-of-pocket or accessed via judicial action. Surveyed physicians indicate that less than 10 percent of patients receiving a nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) receive treatment with FDC-NRTI.

Moreover, in the past six years the government has excluded certain HIV therapies fro
