The Only President Who Banned ARV's Leading To The Death Of Thousands Of People, He Is From Africa

HIV/AIDS management typically entails the use of multiple antiretroviral drugs in an attempt to control HIV infection. Antiretroviral agents are classified into several classes that target different stages of the HIV life cycle. Highly active antiretroviral therapy is the use of multiple drugs that act on different viral targets (HAART). HAART reduces the patient's total HIV burden, keeps the immune system functioning, and prevents opportunistic infections, which often result in death. 

Which President has ever been chastised for his stance on ARVs? 

Mbeki has been chastised around the world for his AIDS policy. He questioned the link between HIV and AIDS, believing that the correlation between poverty and the AIDS rate in Africa called the viral theory of AIDS into question. It is estimated that his ban on antiretroviral drugs in public hospitals has resulted in the deaths of between 330,000 and 365,000 people.
