ABSTRACT
The article reports on the appeal on World Health Organization (WHO) and Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) to the international health-research society to organize a better environment for researchers in the low-income countries for the publication of articles about AIDS and human rights. This action is a wake-up call after the WHO and UNAIDS discovered that there were fewer articles published in low-income countries although AIDS is more common in these countries.
