'Gilead Greed Kills' - AIDS Healthcare Foundation Shames Gilead over Drug Pricing

Jun 17, 2016

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has begun hosting protests targeting Gilead Sciences over the drugmaker’s AIDS and hepatitis C drug pricing and policies.

On June 15, 50 AIDS advocates protested in front of Gilead's headquarters in Foster City, CA. The protesters had 'Gilead Greed Kills' T-shirts, banners, and placards.

Last week, as Gilead executives were presenting at a Goldman Sachs Healthcare Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, AHF protested with a car caravan featuring a hearse, a double-deck bus and 40+ cars covered with ‘Gilead Greed Kills’ banners. The proteset also included a plane pulling a 'Gilead’s Greed Kills!' banner that flew over the resort for several hours.

The protests were inspired by a recent LA Times article that discussed Gilead’s patent manipulation of its best-selling HIV drugs containing tenofovir.
