GENEVA, Feb 21 (IPS) - The United Nations agency entrusted with HIV/AIDS issues seeks improved access to treatment for those testing positive for the disease through a multi-faceted approach, one that coincides with initiatives put forth by developing countries in the international trade arena.

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) proposes tiered pricing for medications, competition among drug suppliers to reduce prices and regional procurement in order to achieve further pharmaceutical discounts.
