Furber, A.S., Hodgson, I.J., Desclaux, A. et al. (1 more author) (2004) Barriers to better care for people with AIDS in developing countries. BMJ, 329 (7477). pp. 1281-1283. ISSN 0959-8138
Access to good quality antiretroviral treatment has transformed the prognosis for people with AIDS in the developed world. Although it is feasible and desirable to deliver antiretroviral drugs in resource poor settings,few of the 95% of people with HIV and AIDS who live in developing countries receive them. The World Health Organization has launched a programme to deliver antiretroviral drugs to three million people with AIDS in the developing world by 2005, the “3 by 5” initiative. We identify some of the challenges faced by the initiative, focusing on delivery of care.
