The problem down in Brazil is not that the drug companies are charging
too much for AIDS drugs.  The problem is that Brazil is refusing to
budget sufficient money to cover the costs associated with dealing with
the AIDS problem the country is sadly faced with.  Instead they're
simply robbing drug companies.  The large drug manufacturing consortium
should consider a boycott on Brazil over the complete range of the rest
of their drug products or simply don't send any of the newer drugs as
they enter the market down there so Brazil can't steal them too.

The idea that drug companies be offered a 'reward' instead of letting
market price be tied to R&D is a bad one.   Say what you will about the
evils of capitalism, but the one truth remains that individuals and
companies will produce more (to the benefit of the community at large)
when they can anticipate a greater benefit to themselves for doing so.

Finding good drugs that cure nasty diseases is expensive no matter how
you look at it.  Governments are neither willing nor able to spend the
necessary money.  The only way that private enterprise is going to step
up and do this is if it pays them extremely well.  I for one would like
to see the day where one of these big companies find a final cure for
AIDS and cancer.  It's just unfortunate that no more reasonable
alternative to that end exists.
