Abstract:

This paper discusses some of the equity concerns faced by the health sector in its response to access to treatment for HIV and AIDS in Zimbabwe. It is part of a larger review carried out in four southern African countries: Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe and at southern African regional level by the Regional Network for Equity in Health in Southern Africa (EQUINET) and Oxfam GB. The review focuses on availability, accessibility, affordability and use of antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) and medication for opportunistic infections in Zimbabwe. The report was compiled using grey and published literature, interviews with key informants, Internet searches and materials obtained from workshops that were held during the
time of the review.
