HIV Treatment In The Developing World
That this House notes with concern that around the world 15 million children have lost one or more parents due to AIDS; notes that only 31 per cent. of adults and barely 10 per cent. of children in need of HIV treatment have access to it and that access to prevention is also limited; further notes that there is a lack of appropriate HIV treatments for children, and that the number of adults who have become resistant to basic HIV treatment and require more expensive medicines is increasing; recognises that pharmaceutical companies have a vital role to play in helping to achieve universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support by 2010; welcomes the fact that many companies have chosen voluntarily to sign up to new patent pool arrangements; and calls for governments, businesses and voluntary organisations to work together in tackling the epidemic.
