Event Details


The effort to provide the best available treatments for diseases throughout the world has frequently been hampered by various industry and government obstacles like patent laws and trade agreements that drive up prices for medications and protocols. Never was this more clear than in the late 1990s and early 2000s when millions of people infected with HIV in Africa and other developing areas were denied access to drugs benefitting patients in the West. The production and availability of generic versions of these medications revolutionized the nature of HIV treatment and made it possible to treat millions of people. The new award-winning documentary, Fire in the Blood, provides an in-depth look at the history of that great breakthrough.  

Join us live online for a short preview and discussion of Fire in the Blood, with expert panelists and the film’s director, as they discuss the battle for affordable medicines and equal access for all patients, which continues to this day.

Els Torreele, Director, Access to Essential Medicines Initiative, Open Society Foundations
