Investing in Meeting the Needs of HIV Patients in Developing Countries
Abbott has made a significant investment in advanced technologies to bring the new formulation to HIV patients, including expanding manufacturing capacity to meet the growing demand for second-line HIV treatment when first-line treatment has failed in developing countries, and developing the innovative and complex Meltrex technology for the new tablet formulation. With this novel, breakthrough technology, the more convenient lopinavir/ritonavir tablet formulation will allow adult patients to take fewer pills with or without food as part of their treatment regimen, and do not require refrigeration – an important advance for patients in developing countries. Efforts are underway to register this new formulation in developing and developed Abbott has taken extensive steps to make the capsule formulations of its HIV medicines, lopinavir/ritonavir and ritonavir, available throughout the world, including in developing countries. This includes the liquid formulations of both medicines that have demonstrated safety and efficacy in pediatric HIV treatment. All current formulations of Abbott's HIV medicines are available in Africa and the LDCs at $500 per patient, per Developing New Formulations
Abbott is applying the Meltrex technology to develop additional new formulations of its HIV medicines to benefit patients around the world. Initiatives include a new lower-dose pediatric tablet being developed with the goals of eliminating the need for refrigeration and providing dosing option flexibility. Abbott also is developing a tablet formulation of its protease inhibitor ritonavir that does not require ABBOTT FILES FOR REGISTRATION OF INNOVATIVE

Delivering Results in the Fight Against HIV/AIDS Through Philanthropy
Abbott and the Abbott Fund are investing $100 million to address fundamental barriers to testing, treatment and support services for people living with HIV in developing countries; results to date include: • Pioneering a new pediatric treatment model – The Abbott Fund supported Baylor College of Medicine in establishing a treatment program in Constanta, Romania, that reduced the death rate for children with HIV by more than 90 percent in three years. This model program is now being replicated by Baylor across Africa, providing treatment for more than 4,000 children with HIV. In partnership with Baylor and the Government of Malawi, the Abbott Fund is supporting the opening of the first pediatric treatment center in Malawi in mid-2006. • Supporting orphans and vulnerable children impacted by HIV/AIDS – The Abbott Fund provides care and support for children through innovative model programs that address specific community needs, including HIV testing, legal assistance for women and children, child-focused counseling and support groups, and vocational training. Since 2001 more than 500,000 children and families have received services in Burkina Faso, India, Malawi, Romania and Tanzania. • Helping prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV – The transmission of HIV from mother to child has been virtually eliminated in the U.S., but remains a significant problem in developing countries. Testing is the first step toward achieving prevention, and Abbott is donating rapid HIV tests to programs for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Africa and the LDCs. To date, Abbott has provided more than 3.4 million free HIV tests through the program. • Expanding access to HIV testing – Abbott has provided more than 42 million rapid HIV tests at no profit in Africa and the LDCs to expand access to testing services.
