The Zimbabwean government plans to begin a new antiretroviral drug treatment policy for its mother-to-child prevention program, Owen Mugurungi, head of the HIV/AIDS and TB unit at the Ministry of Health and Child Welfare, said last week, The Herald/AllAfrica.com reports.
Mugurungi said the only obstacle to implementing the new treatment is cost, as it is more expensive than the single-dose treatment, The Herald/AllAfrica.com reports (The Herald/AllAfrica.com, 2/4).
