JOHANNESBURG, 23 March 2012 (PlusNews) - Almost a thousand Swazi and South African HIV activists marched to the United States consulate in Johannesburg on 22 March 2012 to demand that the US continue supporting the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB) and Malaria, and safeguard funding of its President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which US President Barack Obama's latest proposed budget will cut by 12 percent.
BANGKOK/YANGON, 24 February 2012 (PLUSNEWS) - Lack of access to anti-retroviral therapy (ARV) to treat HIV has left thousands of patients in Myanmar with deteriorating immunity and increased vulnerability to tuberculosis (TB), say health workers.
"The situation is dire," said Peter Paul de Groote, head of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in Myanmar. "The gap between the treatment that is needed and what is received is unacceptably high."
NAIROBI, 11 November 2009 (PlusNews) - Programmes supported by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria reported 2.3 million people on life-prolonging antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in June 2009.
JOHANNESBURG, 27 May 2008 (IRIN) - While most of the local and international aid workers in Myanmar are scrambling to meet the immediate needs of 2.4 million people left stranded by Cyclone Nargis, several organisations are working to ensure that survivors living with HIV are included in the response.
According to the latest estimate by UNAIDS, around 242,000 people - about 0.7 percent of Myanmar's population - are living with HIV, but only about 1,500 of them are receiving life-prolonging antiretroviral (ARV) treatment via a government programme.
