A dialogue on "Getting to Zero" held

"Getting to Zero: A Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue on Treatment Sustainability" meeting was held.  Over 40 participants from PLHIV network leaders, AIDS treatment hubs, and government AIDS programme, met for first time to address treatment needs of PLHIV; identify current community and national responses, and agree on next steps to move forward proposed actions towards treatment sustainability for PLHIV. Generic Pharma Company committed to work with PLHIV community and government to ensure quality affordable medicines for PLHIV as part of its advocacy on “right to health”.  An example of concrete follow-up is the negotiating price reduction for HPV vaccine for women living with HIV.
