Millions unable to access HIV/AIDS Medication

The World Health Organization, UNAids, and Unicef have stated that they are two years behind on their access target of placing 3 million people on antiretroviral therapy (ART).  The main reason behind the slow movement of these agencies is attributed to the weak healthcare systems in these low income countries coupled with lack of staff and long-term financing.  For more, see related BBC story; World Health Organization report on Scaling Up Antiretroviral Therapy in Resource Limited Settings; and a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation case study on Working with Botswana to Confront Its Devastating AIDS Crisis.
