'AHF/India Cares' Provides Second-line AIDS Drugs to Activists in India
Date:11/6/2007

Unavailable at NACO ART Centers, Group Provides Patients Free Second-line ART

NEW DELHI, India, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), which operates free AIDS treatment clinics in India (as AHF/India Cares) that provide treatment, care and support services to over 5,000 Indian clients, is honored to announce that it is also now providing lifesaving second-line antiretroviral treatment (ART) free to Indian AIDS activists whose initial, or first-line, AIDS drug regimens have failed them. As AIDS treatment access has increased in India, Africa and elsewhere in the developing world, the need for access to more effective --- and currently more costly --- second-line AIDS drug therapies has increased dramatically. And as an increasing number of patients are developing resistance to their initial AIDS drug regimens, the need to switch to more clinically-appropriate treatment regimens has become a critical priority.

More than 2.5 million people are now estimated to be living with HIV/AIDS in India today. India's National AIDS Control Organization (NACO) is currently providing first-line ART to slightly more than 100,000 people living with HIVAIDS. However, for those patients needing second-line AIDS treatment, NACO does not provide such potentially lifesaving AIDS treatments. India's media recently reported that NACO-provided first-line treatment is failing up to 50% of HIV/AIDS patients in Delhi, and the number in need of second-line treatment is increasing daily.

AHF/India Cares operates AIDS care treatment and support centers in Mysore, New Delhi and in Guwahati, Assam State in partnership with NACO. Since March 2007, AHF/India Cares has been providing free second-line ART to AIDS activists and clients in need; today this initiative has added a new lease on life for 30 patients who had formerly been cared for and provided their first-line antiretroviral treatment at the NACO ART centers.
