The world's top emerging countries banded together Monday to help fight diseases in the poorest countries, pledging to explore the transfer of technologies to the developing world to enable poor nations to produce cheap and effective lifesaving medicines.
Cape Town's former Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu said Tuesday that South Africa has changed its AIDS policy and no longer should be ashamed of its policies to combat the epidemic.
South Africa's health minister says he has brought down the cost of HIV drugs by 53 percent, enabling the government to treat twice as many patients in the next two years.
South Africa's health minister is increasingly concerned at the cost of coping with AIDS in the country with the world's largest number of HIV-positive citizens.
"It has proven that putting mothers and infants on treatment early on really works," Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi told reporters.
"For my country it is absolutely essential, as we know most of the developing world is in sub-Saharan Africa, which is unfortunately the theater of the battle against communicable diseases like HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria," Motsoaledi said on the sidelines of the meeting.
