Shortage of HIV Meds in Jamaica Leads to Rationing
Generic forms of Alluvia and Truvada are being rationed in

Observer reports. Officials blame inclement

India delivering the drugs. According to the head of the country’s national HIV
program, a shipment of the drugs recently arrived and will be distributed soon.
