Lancet Editorial on Universal Access to HIV/AIDS Drugs
November 5, 2010
"2010 is the landmark year for achieving universal access to HIV treatment. Although the 2006 [goal] did not imply 100% coverage, the words 'universal access' raised expectations. The goal will not be met by the end of this year, but that does not mean those living with HIV/AIDS should believe that universal access is not achievable; it is imperative that it is," states a Lancet Infectious Diseases editorial that examines the recent report (.pdf), "Towards Universal Access," from UNAIDS, UNICEF, and the WHO (November 2010).
