‘Unacceptably’ High Number Of People Dying Of AIDS-Related Diseases In Africa Despite Improved Treatment Access, MSF Says

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Tide turns in AIDS fight yet ‘unacceptable’ death toll across sub-Saharan Africa
“The tide may have turned in the global fight against AIDS, but too many people in sub-Saharan Africa are developing and dying of AIDS-related diseases due to limited testing and problems with treatment, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said on Tuesday. … Despite much improved access to antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in sub-Saharan Africa, an ‘unacceptably’ high number of people are developing AIDS and dying due to drug resistance, treatment being interrupted, and late diagnoses, the medical charity said…” (Guilbert, 7/25).
