Botswana’s annual spending to fight AIDS is unsustainable, Daily News reported, citing the country’s President Ian Khama.
The budget for HIV/AIDS in the 2009-10 fiscal year was 1.3 billion pula ($194 million) and the government is paying for treatment for more than 151,000 people, the Gaborone-based, state-owned newspaper said. This was virtually all those who registered for treatment, it said, citing Khama.
