Free ARVs are not enough: the hidden costs of treating HIV in Nigeria

The Nigerian government’s decision to provide antiretrovirals freely as part of HIV programmes at the country’s health facilities has dramatically improved the uptake of treatment. But it has not been enough to eliminate the high and sometimes inequitable economic burden of HIV/AIDS on households. Exorbitant food and transport costs, as well as the costs of illnesses linked to HIV, hinder full access to treatment services. Households end up having to fork out money they don’t necessarily have.

HIV Mystery: Solved?

 Anyone who was following the HIV epidemic in 2001 found the news shocking: a massive study of young gay men in the United States found that a whopping 32 percent of those who were black had HIV. Why, after some 15 years of widespread campaigns in gay communities urging condom use, was the HIV rate among black men so staggeringly high—and still rising? Today, many researchers have shifted their attention to PrEP, a breakthrough that, they hope, will simplify things considerably.  But the effort to turn PrEP’s promise into a reality is providing insight that is valuable beyond HIV. The long, failing attempt to crack the riddle of black gay men’s higher HIV rate is a cautionary tale for any public-health system operating in a world with endemic inequity.
