World Financial Crisis and AIDS Backlash Threaten Lives

KAMPALA, Uganda and NAIROBI, Kenya and DELHI, India, July 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On the eve of the G8 Summit in Italy, the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) calls on leaders of the world's richest countries to announce significant additional funds to ensure that AIDS treatment and prevention programs for millions of men, women and children do not become a casualty of the economic down-turn.

"People living with HIV/AIDS, who are now receiving treatment, are in danger of losing their drugs because of cutbacks and funding reallocations. Many of those people will die.

"We must continue to scale up and sustain AIDS treatment and prevention programmes in Eastern African countries,
