Patent – Effective Drugs for AIDS

1. Should a drug manufacturer that holds a patent on a drug that is very effective for many AIDS patients be able to sell that drug well above its cost of production during the period of patent protection?

2. If so, under what circumstances?

3. Should these companies sell, or be required to sell, these drugs at lower prices to persons in poor nations that have a larger problem with AIDS than the United States?

4. Please include references.
