Most HIV-Positive Indians Not Receiving Treatment on Time, Global Fund Says

September 9, 2010

"[O]nly one-third of all the people who are estimated to be in need" of HIV treatment in India are receiving it on time, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Executive Director Michel Kazatchkine said, according to Reuters. "Clearly India is one of the countries with the smallest percent of health budget of its overall budget going into health and this is an issue," Kazatchkine said. He also stressed the need for testing and prevention to reach high-risk populations and said the country faces "challenges" with treating TB and malaria as well (Majumdar, 9/9).
