A pricing guide for the purchase of ARVs for developing countries

This is the ninth edition of Untangling the web of price reductions: a pricing guide for the purchase of ARVs for developing countries. The report was first published by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in October 2001 in response to the lack of transparent and reliable information about prices of pharmaceutical products on the international market – a factor which significantly hampers access to essential medicines in developing countries.

The purpose of this document is to provide information on prices and suppliers that will help purchasers make informed decisions when buying antiretrovirals (ARVs). This report is a pricing guide and does not include detailed information about the quality of the products listed.
