Latin America/Caribbean: Countries in the Americas Improve Management of HIV/AIDS Drugs to Prevent Shortages
April 5, 2013
Three Latin American countries -- Guatemala, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic -- are working to strengthen their ability to manage drugs used to treat HIV/AIDS as part of a pilot project supported by the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria. The goal is to prevent shortages of antiretroviral drugs, a problem that countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have experienced. To avoid such shortages, the countries are working to improve supply systems for HIV/AIDS medications and transparency in drug management information.
