Thank you for that wonderful drug (complera) even is one of the best drugs in the promotion of good adherence here in Uganda but it's only in Hospitals supported by partners like MSF our government can not afford the price and our biggest challenge is adherence when it comes to many drugs and times of taking drugs. Drug resistance rate is increasing such drugs could be of much help. "Support Uganda friends"
