Fire in the Blood – Medicine Monopoly Malice

I recently had the opportunity to watch the excellent Fire in the Blood. The film documents aids activists’ struggle against big pharma’s patent monopolies to make treatment available to the worlds poor.

“An intricate tale of ‘medicine, monopoly and malice’, FIRE IN THE BLOOD tells the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments aggressively blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs for the countries of Africa and the global south in the years after 1996 – causing ten million or more unnecessary deaths – and the improbable group of people who decided to fight back.”
