       BMS cuts HIV drug price in Peru after compulsory license threat  
    2015-07-14 - Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) is reported to have agreed to a 35% price reduction to its HIV drug Reyataz (atazanavir) in Peru, after protracted negotiations with the Ministry of Health (MoH). The price of the drug, an antiretroviral drug of the protease inhibitor (PI) class, has been cut from PEN 29.17 (price paid per tablet in 2013) to PEN 18.96 (USD 8.99 to USD 5.84), which will benefit Peru's population of 1,800 HIV/AIDS sufferers.

    Negotiations with BMS reportedly carried on for the past 12 months, and reportedly saw the MoH declare securing supplies of atazanavir as in the public interest, thereby making the drug eligible for compulsory licensing under World Trade Organization rules. The source notes that Reyataz's patent is valid until 2019 in Peru.
