When she discovers that Big Pharma has developed a method to deliver antiretrovirals but is withholding that method from the developing world in order to increase profit margins, Riana takes on the challenge to beat Pharma at its own game. When her Washington partner opposes her work, she discovers new allies among contacts in Tanzania -- a former university classmate, now diplomat, and a young doctor. How they take on the pharmaceutical giants provides a story of courage, ingenuity and compelling personal connections.
