Film: 'Fire In The Blood'

Tells the story of the global activists who fought to overturn a situation where Western pharmaceutical companies and governments blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs for the countries of Africa and the global south in the years after 1996 - causing millions of unnecessary deaths. However, as the film makes clear, with past victories having given way to serious setbacks, the real fight for access to life-saving medicine is just beginning.
