Photograph by Gael Turine

This report provides market information that can be used by agencies wishing to procure HIV/AIDS medicines and diagnostics, and may serve as the basis for negotiating affordable prices.

The data provided by the manufacturers highlight the multiplicity of suppliers and the variation in price of some essential HIV/AIDS-related medicines on the international market. Without this information, there is a risk that low-income countries may be paying more than necessary to obtain HIV/AIDSrelated medicines and diagnostics. Price variations are highlighted through the tables in chapter 5 of this report, as well as in Annex 4.
