Regional Antiretroviral Therapy Policy Dialogue - 31st May 2007, Lusaka, Zambia
Sustained access to anti-retroviral therapy (ART) remains a fundamental and indispensable complement to both treatment and prevention of HIV, as it restores hope to communities and societal structures. The treatment for HIV and AIDS has reached an "emergency" state across the Southern African region. While governments and policy making bodies within the region have engaged in meaningful deliberations and offered commitment towards upholding this neglected human right - the Right to Treatment, the future of existing ART mechanisms and structures, and their effectiveness in the region, continue to be at risk of collapse.
