And again, good PR is a much more efficient and cost effective way of doing business than demanding people cough up thousands of dollars per year to live. Many drug companies already have or currently are donating HIV drugs and services anyway. Besides, the losses can easily be recouped by selling hair loss, erectile dysfunction, and other types of treatments which are elective. Donation of these drugs for research won't crimp a drug company's bottom line at all, these same companies easily recoup their losses by selling erectile dysfunction, hair loss, and other types of non-lifesaving products. Insisting that such a donation would hurt them financially would be woefully ignorant on their part and a potential PR disaster (something which wouldn't be in the interests of shareholders) were world of it to ever get out.
