Mozambicans Protest Health Ministry's Treatment of People Living With HIV/AIDS

August 4, 2009

"Hundreds of protesters took to the street in Mozambique's capital Monday to protest health ministry policies that they say are jeopardizing HIV care in one of the world's worst affected countries," Agence-France Press reports. According to the protesters, the decision by health authorities to close HIV centers and integrate care for people living with HIV/AIDS into healthcare systems has reduced the number of patients seeking treatment (8/3). Including comments by a representative from an organization that provides antiretrovirals in Mozambique, AIM/allAfrica.com writes that the closure of the centers that provided specialized care for people living with HIV "had made the problem of access to anti-retrovirals more serious" (8/3).
