AHF Calls on Gilead to Set Up $10 Billion Fund for Victims Harmed by its TDF-based Drugs
As pressure continues to mount on Gilead Sciences Inc., one of the largest manufacturers of HIV/AIDS drugs, from withholding improved HIV drugs from the public to increase profits, another foundation is taking the podium. AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is calling on Gilead to set up a $10 billion compensation fund for victims that took their TDF-based drugs as part of their HIV/AIDS treatment or preventative treatment (PrEP) programs.
Following up to our previous story which details why and how Gilead delayed the release of their safer HIV/AIDS medication TAF, AHF (via their litigation team) in a recent CA filing pronounced that Gilead knew since 2001 that their TDF drugs were, “…highly toxic in the doses prescribed [to patients] and risked permanent and possibly fatal damage to the kidneys and bones.”
To make matters worse for Gilead, the company made over $18 billion in net profit in 2015 while withholding their newly improved HIV drug TAF.
