No wonder she had been drinking…..

The Science Daily reports on new research about the estimated amount of lives lost because of the delay in implementing a comprehensive antiretroviral programme in South Africa. It compares the situation in South Africa to that in neighbouring countries and come to the following conclusion:

More than 330,000 lives were lost to HIV/AIDS in South Africa from 2000 and 2005 because a feasible and timely antiretroviral (ARV) treatment program was not implemented, assert researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) in a study published online by the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes.

In addition, an estimated 35,000 babies were born with HIV during that same period in the country because a feasible mother-to-child transmission prophylaxis program using nevirapine (an anti-AIDS drug) was not implemented, the authors write.

Wonder what Manto Tshabalala-Msimang and Thabo Mbeki would say about this study….
