Our plan to supply Viread and Truvada to certain developing countries under our Access Program may expose us to unforeseen liabilities and risks.

We have launched our Access Program pursuant to which we will supply Viread and Truvada at our cost to all 97 developing countries. The supply and distribution of drugs in a resource-poor environment is a complicated undertaking. As this program develops, we could face unforeseen challenges and risks, which could give rise to unforeseen liabilities. For example, patients in less developed countries using Viread and Truvada may not be as closely supervised by a doctor as they would be in more developed nations. Accordingly, there may be an increased likelihood of Viread- or Truvada-related complications going undetected or untreated, which could result in significant liability to Gilead.
