Antiretroviral resistance up to 10%

"Dutch researchers have found that 10% of newly diagnosed patients with HIV in Europe are resistant to at least one antiretroviral drug, it was reported at the international AIDS society conference on treatment and pathogenesis in Paris on July 13-16... But Robert Grant, from the University of California at San Francisco who led a similar study in the USA told The Lancet: 'We should not let the resistance problem eclipse the larger, more compelling problem, which is that many people with HIV die around the world without having any treatment. We must not let fear of resistance undermine our will to treat and be treated.'"

It's good to hear someone stress that.
