WASHINGTON, DC JULY 24, 2012—A first-of-its-kind study released today at the International AIDS Conference by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) maps progress across 23 countries on HIV treatment strategies, tools, and policies needed to increase treatment scale-up. The results show that governments have made improvements to get better antiretroviral treatment (ART) to more people, but implementation of innovative community-based strategies is lagging in some countries.
The study, a collaboration with UNAIDS, looks at 25 indicators in each country, ranging from coverage of ART and prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT), to whether nurses instead of doctors can start patients on HIV and TB treatment—critical to relieving the burden on health systems and to getting treatment further into communities—and how many health facilities in each country offer ART.
