ABSTRACT
The author reports that the number of healthcare workers in sub-Saharan Africa must triple annually for 10 years if every person with HIV disease or the AIDs virus is to receive antiretroviral treatment. These findings were presented in a study published in the journal "AIDS Patient Care and STDs." The study reports that there are over five million people worldwide who need antiretroviral therapy but who do not receive it and limited human resources is a primary constraint to achieving universal health coverage for these diseases.
