A new report from the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC), a global community advocacy organisation, documents early warning signs of devastating impact to come from flatlining and cutting AIDS funding.
As evidence mounts that AIDS treatment is inexorably linked with other health issues, including maternal health and tuberculosis, ITPC argues that it will not be possible to build sustainable, credible health systems as the waiting lines for AIDS drugs grow.
The report Rationing Funds, Risking Lives: World backtracks on HIV treatment is the 8th in the Missing the Target series, published by ITPC.
It analyses funding promises and changes in global approaches to treatment programmes and include community collected evidence from India, Kenya, Latvia, Malawi, Swaziland and Venezuela.
