Country lockdowns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic are causing drug shortages that are crippling health-care provision for people living with HIV in Indonesia. The supply chain of antiretroviral treatment (ART) has halted amid lockdowns and travel restrictions from India.1 Many Indonesian districts have completely run out of ART, with other districts running out within 2 weeks. This shortage will result in tens of thousands of people living with HIV stopping ART treatment.
