The Dangerous Financial Politics of AIDS Protease Inhibitor "Cocktails"

Journal of Health Care Finance
Fall 1997

Wish I could find that article! The title is very suggestive of it being "Dangerous" Financially to give drugs to aids patients. Wonder if it says, form a "Policy" perspective we are better off to not treat them and let them die? This is a giant leap on my part, however the title of his article doesn't sound positive to me if I were an aids an aids patient.

Generally you can sumamrize that the Public Health professionals always look to get the msot bang for the buck. They only have so much "Public" dollars to spend so they would rather spend XX dollars on vacinations for thousands than spend XX on sustaining high healthcare expense individuals. This has been my experience having been around Public Health Professionals for all of my life. The policy wonks and Administrators, [Not the M.D.'s who take the Hippocratic Oath, and nurses who are involved in direct patient care] they always tend to focus on saving $$ and limiting healthcare to some in order to benefit more people. It is typically ther job to manage the budget.
