PlusNews Examines How Distance, Transportation Create Barriers to HIV Treatment in Namibia

November 2, 2009

PlusNews examines the challenges associated with providing HIV treatment in Namibia, "a vast country, with wide open spaces and a population density of less than 2 people per square kilometre." Because many people living with HIV live great distances from clinics where therapies are offered and lack the ability to pay for transportation, the article examines how some groups are bringing HIV outreach services to remote regions. The article also examines how food shortages have further compromised patients' ability to access HIV treatments  (10/30).
