Living With HIV in Bolivia
November 24, 2010
BBC reports on living with HIV/AIDS in Bolivia, where "[b]y law, people who are HIV-positive are entitled to free antiretroviral drugs." Still, "experts say efforts to tackle HIV infection in Bolivia are poor because most resources are targeted at what are seen as more immediate threats to health such as malaria and dengue fever." The article features coments from several patients living with HIV as well as medical providers (Cabitza, 11/23).
