Gilead's International Access Operations provide these medicines at a no-profit price to almost 100 low-income countries and at sharply discounted prices in a total of 130 developing countries. In total, 2.1 million people worldwide receive one of Gilead's HIV treatments, two thirds (1.4 million) are in the developing world. 

In the UK and Europe, Gilead is well known for Atripla (efavirenz tenofovir emtricitabine): its single tablet regimen (STR) for the treatment of HIV. Atripla is the only single tablet taken once a day that contains the triple-therapy required to successfully control the HIV virus and prevent progression to AIDS.
