By BBN Staff: The People’s United Party (PUP) condemned the Ministry of Health (MOH) today, over the apparent lack of anti-retroviral (ARV) medication for HIV/AIDS patients.

The PUP stressed that HIV positive persons and those living with AIDS need these medications to live, and note that the party has been informed that patients are being turned away at health facilities across the country because there are no ARV’s available.

“Medical personnel advise that with the lack of anti-retroviral medications patients face risks of viral rebound, acute retro-viral syndrome, increased risk of HIV transmission, decline of CD4 count, HIV disease progression, development of minor HIV-associated manifestations such as oral thrush or serious non-AIDS complications
(e.g., renal, cardiac, hepatic, or neurologic complications), development of drug resistance, and the need for chemoprophylaxis against opportunistic infections as a result of CD4 decline,” the PUP said.

The party also said that it will investigate allegations that the shortage is a result of corruption within the MOH.
