WHO apologises for failing HIV treatment targets

The World Health Organisation has apologised for missing its target to get 3 million people in poor countries on life-saving AIDS drugs by the end of 2005. Dr Jim Yong Kim, the director of the WHO's HIV/AIDS department, admits that the organisation has not moved fast enough to meet the ambitious target. Acording to Reuters, the aim was to provide three million people with treatment but by June only one million people were receiving ARV treatment. Kim says the project can be considered a success as more people now have access to life-saving drugs.
