Call for Africa to Invest in ARVs

International researchers have urged African governments and donors to increase HIV treatment programmes on the continent dramatically

International researchers have urged African governments and donors to increase HIV treatment programmes on the continent dramatically.

This follows the release of a landmark study released at the Sixth International Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention in Rome, which shows infected Africans on antiretroviral (ARV) drugs now live almost as long as those who are HIV negative.

This first analysis of life expectancy outcomes among Africans with HIV is the fruit of collaboration between the British Columbia Centre for Excellence in HIV and AIDS in Canada and the University of Stellenbosch in Cape Town.
