Statement in solidarity with PLHIV demanding access to HIV/AIDS medications

The Delhi Network of Positive People (DNP+), a network of people living with HIV (PLHIV), has been protesting for over a month outside the office of National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) in Delhi. They are protesting against the ongoing shortage of Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART) medicines. The shortage has been raging for more than five months due to alleged discrepancies in the procurement of these medicines by NACO. As per the guidelines set out in the National AIDS Control Programme (NACP), NACO is responsible for supplying these medicines to 680 ART centres spread across the country.
