HYDERABAD, India and PITTSBURGH, Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today announced that its India-based subsidiary Mylan Laboratories Limited has been selected as a leading supplier of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to India's National AIDS Control Organization (NACO). NACO is a division of India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and is responsible for overseeing HIV/AIDS control programs in India. NACO's objective is to halt and reverse the HIV/AIDS epidemic in India over the next five years through integrated programs for prevention, care and support and treatment.

Mylan CEO Heather Bresch commented, "Mylan's mission is to provide the world's 7 billion people access to high quality medicines, and helping to ensure access to high quality, affordable ARVs is a core part of this mission. Only through access to these vital medicines can we stem the tide of HIV/AIDS in India and around the world. We are honored that Mylan has been selected as a significant supplier to NACO and look forward to helping this critical organization achieve its mission."
