This book looks at "...the recent history and the many struggles related to advocacy for access to [antiretroviral] medicines of engaged civil society. Through the experiences of five middle-income countries - Brazil, China, Colombia, India, and Thailand." It presents "...the perspective of local civil society organisations about the national impact of intellectual property protection and access to medications. "These five countries were chosen due to their accumulated experience in this field, their capacity to produce generic medication, their activist efforts, and the exchange of ideas and information that already exists between them"
As antiretroviral (ARV) therapy becomes more widely available in Thailand, it is necessary to have a better understanding of operational issues related to expansion of existing programs. A Rapid Situation Analysis study was undertaken to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the Access to Care project in northern Thailand. The ultimate aim of the study is to make recommendations for action that will improve the quality of ARV services that clients receive and to enhance their adherence to highly active antiretroviral therapy
