It is difficult to know the number of manufacturers of HIV/AIDS medicines, since manufacturers do not have to report to WHO which medicines they are producing. However, as of 29 September 2005, five manufacturers in India have products included on the WHO list of prequalified HIV/AIDS medicines. These are: Aurobindo, Cipla, Hetero, Ranbaxy and Strides.

Please note that WHO prequalification is a product and production-site specific listing. In other words, while one product of a certain company may be prequalified, another product of the same company may not. It is advisable to always check the details of products when visiting the WHO website.
