Many people with HIV have been successfully treated with anti-retroviral drugs.  These people are not cured but the drugs help to keep the HIV from becoming AIDS. To prevent the HIV from becoming full-blown AIDS, HIV positive people have to keep taking these drugs. So, access to healthcare and the appropriate medications becomes imperative for those with HIV.  Unfortunately, the high costs of healthcare and drugs prevent some populations and communities from  accessing these resources. This situation has and is happening in many countries in Africa. The video module, “Access to Medicine,” looks at the ability of people with HIV to access appropriate medicine and healthcare in the United States and in Africa.
