MSF: World #AIDS Day – Flying in the face of evidence
“#Treatment costs have also dramatically dropped, with a decrease of over 99% since 2000.
Now, to the incredulity of everyone who has been dutifully monitoring and evaluating treatment in what must be one of the most accountable and successful global public health programmes ever to exist, donors are threatening to withdraw funding from #HIV/AIDS. The same donors who ten years earlier cited lack of clinical or economic evidence are now, in the face of a wealth of robust evidence supporting efficacy and cost-effectiveness, claiming that AIDS is getting too much money, and that it’s time to do something else instead. The US government is turning its attention to maternal and child health, and several European countries seem to be turning away from health altogether.”
