Shortage of funds for providing AIDS drug in Africa and India

The number of people on antiretroviral therapy has doubled to 1 million worldwide and tripled in Africa and Asia. Asia and Africa are two regions which are hit greatly by AIDS. Though, there is a immense increase in antiretroviral // treatment, it is still far less than the requirement, and the WHO goal to treat 3 million people by 2005, will never happen world wide critics say.

Reports, say that only 11% of those in Africa and 14% of those in Asia have access to AIDS drugs. In India, which has more than 5 million cases of HIV/AIDS, the drugs are available to fewer than 10% of those who need it. The WHO says a shortage of trained health workers, insufficient technical support and lack of reliable funds from donor countries are making it difficult to meet the ‘3 by 5’ goal set in 2003.
