Study Examines Provision of HIV/AIDS Treatment in Conflict Settings

May 31, 2007

"HIV Treatment in a Conflict Setting: Outcomes and Experiences from Bukavu, Democratic Republic of the Congo," PLoS Medicine: The study examined the provision of HIV/AIDS care, including antiretroviral drugs, to a population in the Democratic Republic of the Congo that has experienced conflict. The researchers found that the provision of HIV/AIDS care in areas of ongoing conflict is possible and can be effective with early treatment outcomes similar to those in nonconflict settings. These results were achieved with the support of an international, nongovernmental organization in an urban setting, and the conflict occurred early in the treatment program, according to the researchers. According to the study, similar results in other areas of conflict might not always be possible (Culbert et al., PLoS Medicine, May 2007).
