Abstract

"The world is still one million people short of the original “3 by 5” goal to put three million people on AIDS treatment by the end of 2005. The slow progress has already cost thousands of lives, and is destined to cost millions more. This is particularly tragic because evidence shows that AIDS treatment delivery is working.
This report demonstrates what a catastrophic mistake and monumental betrayal it will be if the G8 and the governments of countries heavily affected by AIDS renege on their commitment to universal access to treatment, just when it is demonstrating its potential to save millions and to pave the way for broader health systems reform.
This fourth edition of Missing the Target provides original, in-depth assessments of the dynamics of AIDS treatment delivery in six countries – Cambodia, China, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. In addition to these new detailed reports, it also includes updates from the six previous report countries – Dominican Republic, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Russia, and South Africa; and short summaries from five other countries – Argentina, Belize, Cameroon, Malaysia, and Morocco. Though there are substantial challenges in every country, significant progress in the numbers of people receiving treatment and wider delivery of support services is clearly documented."
