Lives in the balance: The Urgent Need for HIV & TB treatment in Myanmar

 

There is an HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis crisis in Myanmar. Between 15 and 20,000 people living with HIV die every year, because they lack access to lifesaving anti-retroviral therapy or ART.

This will have a devastating effect on scale up of HIV and TB treatment in the country.
