Expanding Access to Treatment for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS in African communities Worldwide


As we all know, without treatment with the adequate dose of the properanti retroviral, the diagnosis of HIV is a certain death sentence. Persons living with HIV who follow a strict recommended treatment, diet and lifestyle regime are likely to achieve a quality of life nearly comparable to those who are HIV negative. We will compare data from one African country to another looking at the number of people needing treatment against the number actually getting it.


  • The obvious questions are why are people of African descent worldwide more affected to by the HIV Virus?
  • What are the obstacles to achieving 100% treatment coverage for people of African descent living with the virus?
  • Who are the stakeholders, beneficiaries and regulators of the properanti retroviral?
  • What can be done to improve the statistics? 




African Health Dialogues is a weekly health care discussion on AV radio about awareness, progress and gaps, costs and accessibility of medical /pharmaceutical products and services within the African and African Diaspora communities Worldwide.
