Drug Deals

Trade makes the world economy go round. And the rules that drive international trade can mean the difference between life and death. Mrs Okoro, Tinoenda and Eunis are all living with HIV-AIDS. They live in different countries but they share the same need to get hold of treatment they can afford. At the moment, the World Health Organisation estimates that most of the 42 million people living with HIV can't afford treatment. It's a global calamity - hitting developing countries hardest. A landmark agreement reached by members of the World Trade Organisation means that drugs for AIDS can now be excluded from international trade rules. This means governments can import cheap copies of AIDS medicines without breaking WTO rules. In this series of 3 features we hear from people living with HIV in Nigeria, Ghana and the UK about their daily fight for treatment. The new deal may change the lives of people living with HIV-AIDS. But for now, and for the near future, they're still fighting for their daily drugs.
