''There are many questions about future quality of care as the NGOs curtail their spending and the government takes on more financial and medical care responsibilities. There are also new pressing issues involving people living longer with HIV thanks to ARV treatment but they need assistance with reintegration, employment, food, life skills, etc. There is a very interesting phenomenon of men and women with HIV meeting in the HIV wards and starting relationships with each other after they leave the hospital and receive ARV treatment. They live together because they are both HIV positive and ARV treatment makes them healthy enough to maintain fairly normal lives - lives that can be extended by up to 40 years. But almost all of these people will need financial assistance, housing, and medical care. So there are new spending requirements and resources must be used differently to help these people - something that is happening today but not to the extent it should be or needs to be in order to reach the thousands of men and women living with HIV.''
