With the support of the Open Society Access to Medicines Initiative, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) issued its fifth report on scale-up of AIDS services: Missing the Target #5: Improving AIDS Drug Access and Advancing Health Care for All in December 2007.

The comprehensive report investigates AIDS drug access in 14 countries and finds that high prices, patent and registration barriers, and ongoing stock-outs are core issues impeding better and faster AIDS drug delivery. Civil society advocates identify specific problems and recommend solutions to improve AIDS drug access.

ITPC is a group of 1,000 treatment activists from more than 125 countries and has emerged as a leading civil society coalition on treatment preparedness and access issues.
