    hello teachers!

    "And for people living with HIV/AIDS, even a short delay in accessing TB treatment can be fatal," the report said. HIV destroys the immune system. Drug cocktails can help control this but there is no cure and the drugs are usually not available in poorer countries.

    does "drug cocktails" mean "a combination of drugs" (cocktails makes me thinks of a drink )

    thanks for your help!!

    You are correct. In this case, "drug cocktails" refers to a pinch of this medicine, a little bit of that medicine, a big dose of this other medicine, all combined to treat that particular patient.
