DOHA+10 TRIPS flexibilities and access to antiretroviral therapy: lessons from the past, opportunities for the future
The transformation of HIV from almost certain death to a chronic condition for many people living with HIV in low- and middle-income countries is a significant public health achievement. By the end of 2010, 6.6 million people in low- and middle-income countries – 47% of the total number eligible – had access to antiretroviral therapy. This represents a dramatic increase from the 300,000 (2.7% of those eligible) on antiretroviral therapy in 2002.
