Drug Access | Many Chinese Children Living With HIV/AIDS Do Not Have Treatment Access, Report Finds - Kaisernetwork.org

I'm learning more about HIV/AIDS tight now, and particular what I'm wondering is: Why the medicine cost so much. As I was reading in my Google reader this news item caught my attention because the title is telling about poorness in china. poor people in China can't afford medicine because of the expenses. the HIV/AIDS medicine is very expensive.
The quote I chose here is basically saying that the people with AIDS don't have much money to get their daily medicine and they can't afford so they just have to suffer some how and die.
I think this is sad because people are dying just like that. I think the Chinese government should help a little bit ti the poor who can't even buy their medicine to leave.
Children living with HIV/AIDS in China, particularly those in rural areas, often do not have access to treatment because of associated expenses or because their families are unaware of government-funded treatment programs, according to a report released Monday by Asia Catalyst, Reuters/Boston Globe reports. Asia Catalyst Executive Director Sara Davis said, "China has made great progress in the fight against AIDS, but far too many children are getting the wrong AIDS treatment."
