Video: Vital drug elude HIV victims

Zimbabwean HIV victims cannot afford to buy drugs that slow progression of Aids.

    In the first of a series on the stigma of HIV and Aids, Al Jazeera visits Zimbabwe where HIV patients face a shortage of anti-retroviral drugs.

    The treatment is essential because it slows the progression of HIV to Aids.

    The Global Fund has provided a $37 million donation but health officials say it is not enough.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports from Bulawayo in Zimbabwe.
