South African minister accused of human rights abuse.

Abstract:

:South African Health Minister Dr. Manto Tshabalala-Msimang was accused of human rights abuse for refusing to supply zidovudine to all HIV-positive pregnant women. The accusations were laid by Dr. Costa Gazi, a South African doctor employed in the state health system with the Human Rights Commission. Dr. Gazi believes that supplying such a drug to pregnant women would be more cost-effective than facing the economic and humanitarian consequences of refusing to supply the drug. Meanwhile, the health minister's refusal was based on his doubt about the safety and efficacy of zidovudine. She said that findings of several trials of the drug used in the prevention of maternal transmission of HIV do not adequately show that zidovudine would be useful for South African pregnant women. Moreover, the toxic effects of the drug, particularly on their children, have not yet been sufficiently examined.
