Response from Dr. Wohl
I am unsure how we can help. Your cousin needs medical assistance. He may require medication to treat his liver infection and certainly needs HIV medicines. I do not know how available HIV therapies are in Indonesia or if they are available for free or low cost.
Ask his doctors where HIV medications can be obtained. Are there public clinics or programs run by non-governmental organizations where HIV infected persons are receiving care?
