IRIN Examines Efforts to Improve HIV Prevention, Treatment Access for Key Groups

November 27, 2013

"Around the world, the most marginalized groups in society -- from Roma to HIV-positive people to sex workers to drug users -- are reluctant to access basic health services because they fear arrest, intimidation and harassment," IRIN reports. "While donors and governments spend vast amounts to put these critical services in place and maintain them, unless the most at-risk people are able to access them, the money is wasted and, perhaps more importantly, the health-related Millennium Development Goals will never be met," the news service writes and examines a recent report from the Open Society Foundations (OSF), which "documents the impact of creative and low-cost grassroots legal initiatives that can help stop the most discriminated-against groups from falling through the health net" (11/26).
