Hope for Africa in the AIDS Fight

Africa in ‘a make-it or break-it moment’ in response to AIDS epidemic, according to UNAIDS

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) says that Africa is now at ‘a make-it or break-it moment’ in response to the HIV-AIDS epidemic.

Speaking from Addis Ababa, UNAIDS executive director, Michael Sidibe, points out that there have been massive advances over the past decade in the fight against AIDS in Africa.

Sidibe, who maintains that the fight to acquire affordable AIDS drugs has been successful, states that costs are now down to US$120 per person per year, and over five million HIV-positive people are receiving treatment in Africa.
