Excerpt
Foreword As we reach the end of 2003, the lives of at least a billion people in more than 40 countries are affected by crises. Some are in danger because of sudden dramatic events - a flood, earthquake, hurricane or a rush of refugees, a fire or a chemical accident. Millions more are affected by long-term, complex crises: usually because they are caught up for months – even years – as a result of ongoing violent conflict. In this report we describe a third wave of crises - the insidious but widespread suffering that results from mounting levels of untreated HIV infection. Unless they can receive comprehensive care, including anti-retroviral therapy, they will die of their infections. When HIV prevalence rates are high, death rates among young untreated adults are high too, with dramatic social and economic consequences for their communities. A crisis develops when people’s lifelines start to break down: when the systems which enable them to get food and water, to be secure and safe cannot cope and start to break down. Crisis-affected people are usually in need, suffering - and facing increased risks of death. Much of the suffering during crises is caused by disease. Indeed, higher than normal death rates are more likely to be due to illness, than starvation, drowning or bullet wounds. And the illnesses that cause death would, under normal circumstances, be treated – or even prevented.
