Call for action

Call to Action directed at governments of the NeLP countries, pharmaceutical companies, but also HIV/AIDS activists is one of the key outcomes of the Access to Treatment in Central and South East Europe – Regional Meeting that took place in Skopje, Macedonia on October 24-27 2014.

The Call clearly states most crucial challenges for adequate access to HIV treatment, such as:

  • limited and outdated treatment options, including limited pediatric treatments;
  • dangerous and unacceptable treatment interruptions that can lead to resistant forms of HIV;
  • inadequate planning of budget for treatment and inefficient funding mechanisms;
  • lack of registered medicines and delayed decisions for reimbursement;
  • systemic obstacles to timely start of antiretroviral therapy, such as lack of health insurance for certain affected individuals or groups.

As well as some of the recognized activities mentioned stakeholders should undertake in order to improve access to HIV treatment.
