Graveyards are overflowing throughout Southern Africa because we can't give enough Aids victims lifesaving antiretroviral drugs.

Blame denialist politicians wallowing in ignorance, multinational drug companies defending obscene profits or whatever conspiracy theory strikes your fancy. But millions still die for want of ARVs.
