"The "3 by 5" goal to have 3 million people in low and middle-income countries on ART by the end of 2005 is ambitious. Estimates of the necessary resources are needed to facilitate resource mobilization and rapid channelling of funds to where they are required. It is estimated that between US$ 5.1 billion and US$ 5.9 billion will be needed by the end of 2005 to provide ART, support programmes, and cover country-level administrative and logistic costs for '3 by 5'. Scaling up ART was again the central theme of this year’s National AIDS
Programme Managers’ Meeting for the South-East Asia Region held from 10 to 11 July 2004 in Bangkok, Thailand.
