Malawi Hopes to Put More Than 500,000 People on ARVs by End of 2010

March 22, 2010

IRIN reports on Malawi's plans to "more than double the number of people receiving antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to half a million by the end of 2010." The country is implementing new WHO guidelines that recommend starting people on ARVs when their CD4 counts are at 350 rather than 200. "UNAIDS Country Coordinator Patrick Brenny said the targets were reachable, provided the country could mobilise the resources, including money, drugs and manpower. An estimated 200,000 HIV-positive people are on treatment in Malawi, where HIV prevalence is at 12 percent" (3/19).
