The article focuses on the findings of the report by the World Health Organization (WHO) concerning HIV treatment. The report revealed that there is little chance of achieving the global goal of universal access to antiretroviral therapy and interventions to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV by the end of 2010. The report also urged greater efforts to scale up of early testing of HIV exposed infants and further integrate HIV interventions with services for maternal and child health.
