To the Editor: The Editorial by Dr Fauci1 highlighted the importance of the control of infectious disease and advocated public health measures coordinated with biomedical research. While this recommendation is much welcomed, it does not address the mounting evidence that the effective technologies generated through such studies are not reaching many of those who need them most.2 A substantial proportion of this failure can be attributed to health delivery system constraints, a problem that has undergone fewer systematic assessments than have biomedical interventions.
