Info collected and entered from a Cipla-provided .tiff graphics file by alexweir1949@yahoo.com

Note that ARV's are of course no cure for AIDS - they only extend one's life and/or one's useful life by say on average 3-10 years. Of course some people also get HIV-positive without ever developing AIDS - they are carriers; and a few people on ARV treatment go well beyond 10 years.

Now note from the above that Anti-Retroviral Drugs can be supplied for on average US$ 0.50 per day or US$ 180-00 per year. For a population with a per capita income of US$ 500 per annum and 20% of population HIV-positive, then it would cost 7.2% of GNP to put all HIV-positive population on ARV's - a high but not impossible figure.

Note that most 3rd world Anti-Aids Programs emphasise more having foreign experts riding round in 4x4 vehicles and never think about such a universal medication policy - they prefer to tinker and have meetings and conferences and feel good about themselves (while achieving almost nothing)
