    By - Caitlyn Bradburn - HIV Technical Advisor

    Maintaining Treatment Saves Lives
    By - Caitlyn Bradburn - EFA HIV Technical Advisor
     The headline “Cameroon: Shortage of ARVs Hits Cameroon HIV/AIDS Patients” sent me into a spiral of concern.  The actual article did not do much to quell my worry: half of those who need the life-saving medications will not be able to get them and a solution does not seem to be forthcoming.  I...

    Stockouts and a Solution
    By - Caitlyn Bradburn - EFA HIV Technical Advisor
    Imagine living with a chronic disease.  Imagine that you need to take daily medications to keep your illness under control.  So far, not too difficult to imagine.  People around the world live with chronic diseases like diabetes or heart disease and manage their diseases.  Now imagine that your doctor...
