Lives in the balance: the urgent need for HIV and TB treatment in Myanmar

 The UN estimates that over the last few years between 15,000 – 20,000 people living with HIV dieannually in Myanmar, because of lack of access to urgent lifesaving anti-retroviral therapy (ART).

Lives in the Balance outlines the situation for people affected by HIV and TB, with a special focus on multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), in Myanmar today. It calls for urgent funding and assistance to be made available by the international donor community to help Myanmar close the devastating gap between people’s need and people’s access to treatment for HIV and TB.
