The high cost of life-saving antiretroviral (ARV) therapy for HIVrepresents an expense that impedes accessibility and affordability bypatients. This price structure also appears to motivate the diversion ofARVs and the targeting of HIV-positive patients by pill brokers in theillicit market. Our field research with indigent, HIV-positive substanceabusers links ARV diversion to high levels of competing needs,including psychiatric disorders, HIV stigma, and homelessness.Interventions to reduce diversion must address the needs of highlyvulnerable patients (Authors).
