MSF’s ‘Untangling the web’
The sixth edition of MSF’s “Untangling the web of price reductions: a pricing guide for the purchase of ARVs in developing countries” was published in pdf format in April 2004.
This new edition contains updated information on prices for eligible countries (including price/unit and price/patient/year) for both adult and paediatric formulations and updated information and clarifications on the conditions and restrictions applying to these offers.
Untangling the web will be printed as part of the joint WHO-UNICEF-UNAIDS-MSF project ‘Sources and prices of selected medicines and diagnostics for people living with HIV/AIDS’, due out next month. We expect that the printed version will be available in a month.
