Abstract

"The International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC) is a global alliance of over 600 treatment activists that includes people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) and their advocates. The ITPC AIDS Treatment Report is the first systematic assessment of treatment scale up based on the research of people living in communities in six countries where the epidemic has hit the hardest - the Dominican Republic, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Russia and South Africa. The report is based on their experiences and first-hand knowledge of the situation on the ground. Each country used a case study methodology, which emphasizes interviews with carefully selected key informants...
The ITPC AIDS Treatment Report is a prescription for the future. As ART has started to roll out in these six countries, the ITPC research teams have identified barriers that could imperil efforts to make treatment more widely available. The teams have also made concrete recommendations for governments and international institutions.
These recommendations must be taken up with urgency if the goal of universal access by 2010 is to be achieved."
