Abuja Challenges the Government

Abuja, the African leader set new targets to the government on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. He said this in the Nigerian capital. a major resolution was passed,// declaring that at least 80 % of the patients suffering from these diseases should have access to HIV/AIDS treatment such as antiretroviral (ARV) drugs, care and support. Civil society organizations were eager to note these targets but were doubtful whether these will be met. The doubt is mainly because of the very little progress that has been achieved in implementing goals set in 2001. The African Union (AU) found that Nigeria, Burundi and Ethiopia were set aside only 4 %, 3 % and 2% of their annual budgets respectively for health.

Less of one third of the African countries spends 10% of their budget on health. The lack in achievement of these targets in most of the countries is the proof of a lack of political will in these countries. Director-general of the African Council of AIDS Service Organisations (Africaso) Tadinane Tall said that the 15 % target set in 2001 was insufficient to address the challenge. This has become so due to the fact that most of the African States do not take the health sector seriously. To achieve this the officials pledged that at least 80 % of pregnant women should have access to medication for preventing mother-to-child transmission and another 80 % of target populations should have access to voluntary testing and counselling services. Dr Chrispin Kambaili, Medical Director of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) Kenya Regional Office said that to achieve the target there is a need for regular monitoring.
