Untangling the Web of Price Reductions: a pricing guide for the purchase of ARVs for developing countries was first published in 2001 in response to the lack of transparent and reliable information about prices of pharmaceutical products on the international market. The purpose of the document is to provide information to help purchasers make informed decisions when purchasing ARVs. The 11th edition has been released at the AIDS conference in Mexico and is available in 4 languages: English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. Drug by drug, the report details the prices of ARVs quoted by companies, both originator and generic manufacturers. It provides an analysis of the evolution in the prices since the first edition and focuses on some of the key access issues for each product in developing countries. The report is a pricing guide and therefore should not be viewed as a manufacturers’ price list. In this 11th edition, all 22 U.S. FDA approved ARVs are included.
