People receiving antiretroviral treatment tripled in developing nations

A new report by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) was released lately. It shows that the number of people on HIV antiretroviral treatment (ART) in low- and middle-income countries have tripled to more than 1.3 million in December 2005 from 400000 in December 2003.  The report also says that the lessons learnt in the last two years provide a foundation for global efforts, now underway to provide universal access to HIV treatment by 2010. The report also assures the treatment access to be expanded in every region of the world during the ‘3 by 5’ initiative.
