AUDIO:Economic crisis effects treatment of HIV/AIDS patients in South Africa



From Free Speech Radio News

According to a recent Oxfam report, at least 75 million fewer children in poor countries are likely to attend school and 8.6 million fewer people could have access to HIV/AIDS treatment if aid is diverted to help poor countries fight climate change.

One country where the global economic crisis is affecting efforts to treat AIDS patients is South Africa. Here the UN estimates that 5.7 million people live with HIV/AIDS and 18 percent of those aged 15 to 49 have contracted the virus. FSRN´s Nathan Moore reads for our reporter Gabe Matthews who recently visited an AIDS clinic in Capetown.
