In 1996, it looked as though AIDS, while not beaten, could at least be successfully treated. But the new medicines were unaffordable for many people in the developing world, and most of them still are today. The Western pharmaceutical industry has blocked the patents and prevented companies, e.g. in India, from creating generic copies of the original drugs. Taking Africa as an example, Fire in the Blood shows with what energy the West controls the market, taking the death of thousands of AIDS sufferers into account for the sake of profit. And how people, governments and companies are trying to overcome this inhuman patent monopoly.
