World Financial Crisis and AIDS Backlash Threaten Lives

" said Rose Kaberia of the Network of African People Living with HIV/AIDS, and a member of ITCP from Kenya. "Scaling back these programmes would have a devastating impact on individuals who need treatment, on the health system, which could be overwhelmed by AIDS-related illnesses, and on the progress made in reducing the number of new HIV infections in the region.

"A decade ago, many people said that it was impossible to provide AIDS treatment to millions of people living in Sub-Saharan Africa. We've proven that it can be done and we must now show that it can be sustained, even through this global economic crisis."

ITPC's Missing the Target reports have documented the effects of drug stock-outs, supply chain problems and other issues that cause interruptions in HIV treatment and can lead to a rise in drug resistant strains of HIV, treatment failure, and death. The UNAIDS/World Bank report notes that the health of millions of patients may be threatened even by short-term treatment interruptions.
