ABSTRAK

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.
