IRIN/PlusNews Examines Financial Costs Associated With HIV/AIDS Care in Kenya

May 19, 2010

IRIN/PlusNews examines common financial burdens HIV/AIDS patients in Kenya face. "The Kenyan government provides free antiretroviral treatment (ART) to more than 300,000 Kenyans and free diagnosis and treatment of TB, which has significantly lightened the financial load of people living with HIV, but for many, the cost of treating opportunistic infections and journeying to and from distant health centres is crippling," the news service writes. The article details some of the costs associated with HIV/AIDS, including food and travel (5/17).
