Zimbabwe: Harare Expanding AIDS Treatment -- But Prevention Remains Critical

January 10, 2007

The state-run Herald newspaper last week quoted Owen Mugurungi, Zimbabwe's national HIV/AIDS coordinator, as saying the government hopes this year to raise number of people receiving antiretrovirals from 50,000 to 160,000.

Still, Population Services International says prevention efforts deserve the credit for recent decreases in Zimbabwe's adult infection rate, which now stands at about 18 percent.
