Case 5: HIV/AIDS, the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (Page 4 of 38)
Phase One: Thinking About the Issues
Q1. Who are the stakeholders affected by rising costs of HIV/AIDS drug therapy?
It is important to be able to identify those who have a vested interest in the rising costs of HIV/AIDS drug therapy because they will be the various audiences who may ask you questions.
One group with a real interest are those with HIV/AIDS and who are undergoing drug therapy. Family and friends are also very concerned. Do we know who in the U.S. is suffering from HIV/AIDS? What source would you go to to find this information?
What other groups can you think of that have a vested interests in the rising costs of HIV/AIDS drug therapy?
