Geneva/Guatemala City, November 26, 2004 - The Guatemalan Congress's repeal of a law that severely restricts people's access to affordable essential medicines is a positive step forward. The international humanitarian medical aid organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said today that the government of Guatemala should now take advantage of this decision to ensure treatment for greater numbers of Guatemalans living with HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases. But MSF also warned that this step forward could be undermined and reversed by similar provisions included in the recently signed United States-Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA).
