'3 by 5' Progress report
ISBN 92 4 159275 3
Progress in the second half of 2004 has been dramatic, reaching the December milestone of 700 000 people receiving antiretroviral therapy. A remarkable international movement has now gathered behind the '3 by 5' target. Most importantly, many countries have shown leadership by increasing their own political and financial commitments, mobilizing human resources and effectively engaging partners to scale up treatment. It is clear that that the success of '3 by 5' will ultimately depend on continued strong commitment and follow-through by governments.
