Zimbabwe HIV/AIDS Activists Concerned ARV Drive May Be Faltering

March 28, 2007

Zimbabwean HIV advocates are discouraged by Health Minister David Parirenyatwa's recent comments regarding the high cost of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs and difficulties in implementing an ARV treatment roll-out. Advocates said that without national ARV treatment access, testing and counseling will suffer in Zimbabwe. About 50,000 HIV-infected Zimbabweans have ARV access, and the government's goal is for 160,000 patients to receive ARVs by year's end. However, funding to expand ARV access is lacking, said Dr. Tapiwanashe Gwakura, a Health Ministry specialist.
