The HIV epidemic has created business opportunities for many people. In many cases, people and companies pursue these opportunities with the sincere intention of helping while staying within the bounds of the law and maintaining fiscal integrity. The same motives can sometimes lead to harm even with the best of intentions. In some cases, the motive is simply to make a buck regardless of the consequences to those affected. The latter is what opens the door to fraud.
The Texas AIDS Health Fraud Information Network, TAHFIN, works in partnership with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to expose questionable and dangerous HIV treatments that can cause harm to Texans with HIV.
