ARVs Dropout Rate a Concern - UN

The world can learn from South Africa's ‘impressive’ rollout of antiretroviral treatment to more than two million people, says WHO

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says the world can learn from South Africa's ‘impressive’ rollout of antiretroviral treatment to more than two million people but too many of those on treatment are being ‘lost’ in the system.

Director of the WHO’s HIV department,  Dr Gottfried Hirnschall, points out that South Africa has shown other countries that access to treatment could be scaled up quickly.

Hirnschall, who presented the WHO's independent review of South Africa's HIV and TB programmes to Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, says it is of concern that the whereabouts of 40 percent of the patients on ARVs are unknown after three years.
