LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DRUG$, a new documentary that explores the mystery of modern medicine’s skyrocketing price tag here in the U.S. and how it affects people struggling to stay alive, is now widely available to the public streaming on Amazon Prime and YouTube after finishing a weeklong theatrical run in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Music Hall 3 in Beverly Hills. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor J.K. Simmons, the film concluded a similar theatrical run in New York at the Cinema Village Theater last week.
The 79-minute documentary, a Foxhound Productions film produced by AHF, presents deeply humanizing stories, in addition to interviews with academics, patients, advocates and political leaders, including Senator Bernie Sanders and Congressman Elijah Cummings. In a titanic struggle against corporate greed, see how a diverse group of concerned Americans is fighting back to keep lifesaving medicines affordable for us all. (‘DRUG$’ trailer)

About AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and why we produced this film:
The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has grown from a small community hospice provider, caring for people dying of AIDS in Los Angeles to the largest global HIV/AIDS organization in the world, now providing care to over one million people in 42 countries. In 2017, AHF marked a momentous milestone – its 30-year anniversary.
Providing and treating human beings with the medicine they need to survive is at the core of our mission. For three decades, our organization has strived towards treating as many people as possible, advocating for lower medication costs. The cost of medicine cannot go down if pharmaceutical companies continue to set and achieve billion-dollar profit goals.
