HIV/AIDS

HIV and AIDS affect thirty eight million people worldwide. The vast majority of these people live in developing countries and they can't afford to buy the drugs they need to help them live longer. As the world's biggest HIV and AIDS conference opens in Bangkok, InterWorld Radio brings you the latest programme in its regular strand.

We will be bringing you voices and testimonies from people living with HIV, and looking at some of the problems they face in getting access to treatment.

In we hear about female HIV-positive survivors of the 1994 genocide, and new calls for them to receive antiretrovirals.

Rwanda: The right to heal

Many of the women who were raped during the 1994 Rwandan genocide are now living with HIV or dying of Aids. To add to their sense of injustice, the men in international custody accused of the rapes get HIV treatment - while most victims don't.

Survivors' groups are now calling for these women to be given international priority for expensive antiretroviral drugs. IWR hears the stories of three survivors.

China: The silent epidemic

Nelson Mandela is calling on the world to recognise it cannot defeat AIDS unless it also fights tuberculosis.

At the World AIDS Conference in Bangkok this week he described the lung disease as a death sentence for those with HIV, telling delegates: "The world has made defeating AIDS a top priority. This is a blessing, but TB remains ignored."

The treatable disease is the biggest killer of HIV positive people in developing countries. But diagnosing TB is not always straightforward, as Yuen Chan reports from Nanning in Southern China.
