Lancet Comment Says HIV Treatment Needs Continued Scale-Up

August 6, 2010

Keying off a Lancet study on how prognostic modeling might help guide antiretroviral therapy in sub-Saharan Africa, the authors of a Lancet Comment write about the "enormous" challenge of treating all HIV-positive patients in need of drugs and the importance of gaining efficiencies in overall health care in developing countries. "There is a growing pessimism among donors about how to deal with the difficulty of HIV treatment in resource-poor settings. There is a move towards control of other diseases with less expensive therapies that are time-restricted and strengthening of health systems instead of provision of antiretrovirals. Funding for HIV treatment should again be put on the international agenda otherwise the efforts of the past will have been in vain," the authors write (Koole/Colebunders, 8/7).
