New Delhi: Nov 13, 2010
All HIV patients put on first-line antiretroviral therapy (ART) before 2004 but who became resistant to those drugs will now receive the life saving second-line treatment free of cost from the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO). This is irrespective of whether the patients were receiving first line ART in a government centre or a private hospital. This major policy shift was finalized by NACO on Thursday night.
