Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The thesis investigates which possibilities there are for Sub-Saharan Africa to achieve the UN’s vision of universal treatment of HIV-patients, whilst the sustainability is secured. The focus is upon the limitations and possibilities for achieving this in Kenya and draws upon the inflammation indi-cator suPAR as a case, for analyzing the possibilities of increasing the quantity and quality of the HIV treatment. We conclude that the implementation of suPAR will result in cost savings, although the most important gain is in regards to the conserved human resources in the treatment system. It is furthermore concluded, that the combination of an increased focus on universal access to HIV treatment and the ongoing reduction of international financial aid, increases the risk of treatment drop-out in severely donor-dependent countries.
