New AIDS Medication

July 11, 1996

The International AIDS Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is wrapping up.

Some believe these drugs could turn HIV into a manageable rather than deadly disease, but the medication is extremely expensive and completely out of reach for the vast majority of people living with AIDS around the world.
