HIV/AIDS Program = Success

The mortality rate began to decline and by 2002, the Ministry of Health had determined that due to the availability of the drug it had prevented around 358,000 HIV-related hospitalizations. By 2008, it was estimated that almost 200,000 people living with HIV were receiving the antiretroviral drugs. The extent of the success of the program in Brazil can be taken into consideration with the fact that the World Bank had stated that 1.2 million people in Brazil would be infected with HIV/AIDS by the year 2000 and in reality there were 600,000 people infected.
