Ahead Of U.N. General Assembly Meeting Next Month, IPS Examines Global Funding Shortfall For HIV/AIDS Treatment

Inter Press Service examines the global funding shortfall for antiretroviral treatment programs for people living with HIV/AIDS, noting that the U.N. General Assembly High Level Meeting on AIDS next month in New York “will shape the direction of the global response to HIV and AIDS for the next decade and beyond.” The news service reports: “In a bid to secure funding and political commitment, groups like International HIV/AIDS Alliance want to underline the benefits of ART as not just a treatment method but also as a tool to reduce transmission” (Redvers, 5/23).
