9:32 pm
military rulers have continued. egypt's constitutional referendum has passed the public vote paving the way for a president. to remain for more than another decade the national election authority has now it's that turnout was just over forty four percent with almost ninety percent of voters backing the proposed changing. let's get more now on our top story that of course the aftermath of the easter sunday attacks in sri lanka colleen rowley is a former f.b.i. special agent in the u.s. she says the scale of these bombings shows that foreign assistance was given to the perpetrators. the knowledge of how to make bombs except drought usually get shared and this is one of the reasons why terrorism has gone up the war zones are the fertile ground of the training and i think there's actually been some ah
9:33 pm
attribution they usually put out a video that shows that there's some proof and in this case it's not surprising at all but when you get this what the united states said they didn't want to do after nine eleven was to have a war on islam you now have that problem because you have radical islamic extremists attacking. christians and whatever and you also have radical christians extremist christians in area and you know groups attacking mosques it's almost like this is going to do nothing but ratchet up the problem and make it worse and worse unless the you know people return to a saner approach to terrorism the united states has been misled to believe that there are computer programs that can somehow filter and glean the relevant info that they are vacuuming up from the non-relevant and and that's that's proven as
9:34 pm
our troop. voting has begun in the further of the largest phase of india's month long general election the prime minister narendra modi voted in his home state a good route he's running for a second term in office and this election is seen as a referendum on his five years as prime minister. well choosing could be the last time that millions of indians in the north east of the country get to vote that's because then names are not on a list which is meant to separate out citizens from undocumented migrants. from. voting the selection maybe for the last time despite his family living in the region since one thousand nine hundred thirty s. his name is not on the national register of citizens a list created to distinguish between indian citizens and illegal migrants from
9:35 pm
other countries. a completed draft of the register was released in twenty team and its wife was on the list but he and his daughter weren't. when we found out names weren't on the list we would be. if we don't find our names on the list we will lose all our rights as citizens if we lose our rights we will lose everything that we have. i think it's a problem facing almost four million people in this region who could face imprisonment even deportation if they're not on the register many hindus and muslims live in villages and towns like this one in assam generations of their families have been here for centuries but more recently new migrants have arrived illegally from bangladesh. that's become a political issue this election with the prime minister saying the government will act against illegal migrants. our full effort is to make sure that.
9:36 pm
the name of. the national register. rights groups say the governing party the b j p is targeting people based on religion and ethnicity and turning the citizens register into a political weapon government is definitely trying to get people to understand that this process isn't one hundred. but it is going by the state government and the central government right without. this independent candidate has been campaigning to keep the migrants out saying they don't fit in you become a prick like in the genocide but they just piss off from all the common numbers. and then they just visit. them it checks in at the polling station and goes to cast what maybe his last vote is an indian citizen he's appealing to get on the citizen's register even fails he worries he and his family will lose everything clued in the right to live in their own country. sam now it's
9:37 pm
thirty five years since the coals of aids the hiv virus was recognized since two thousand and four when almost two million people died from the disease aids related deaths have dropped by more than fifty percent and medicines are helping millions of people live healthier lives it. reports. living with hiv is the reality for almost thirty seven million people the use of multiple drugs in a motel to control the infection has helped those with the virus live as long as those without it but two out of every five people with hiv forty one percent have no access to life saving medication left untreated hiv can destroy so many cells that the body is unable to fight off infections and disease and that can lead to aids drugs help keep the level of hiv in the body low is that allows the immune
9:38 pm
system to recover and stays strong and also helps to prevent the virus being passed on in two thousand and five only two million people were using the necessary drugs to control hiv by two thousand and seventeen that number had risen to more than twenty one million africans seen the biggest increase in treatment and today most pregnant women with hiv have access to medicines to prevent the virus being passed on to their babies but worldwide almost two million children under fifteen have the virus infected by their mothers during pregnancy birth or breastfeeding is estimated around nine million people don't even know they have hiv for those that do access to treatment and support still largely depends on where they live. right now i can speak to neil. associate professor of law at georgetown university law
9:39 pm
center who's joining us from washington d.c. thanks for talking to us so this is a good news story isn't it deaths are down by fifty percent since the peak days. that certainly is and thank you for having me on it's certainly great that we have so many good hiv drugs now in the market the problem is many times there on affordable for people even in developed countries right so that will account for the rather unlevel playing field if you like i mean it's a bit of a lottery wherever you are is it a postcode lottery if you're in zambia perhaps you going to have less access to these vital antiretroviral drugs then if you're in the u.k. for instance yeah i mean so you know in more developed countries right we have advanced insurance systems in place to help with the costs of these drugs but
9:40 pm
as a practical matter a lot of these drugs are so expensive that the cost is borne somehow either through tax payers or through higher insurance premiums and as a sort of flows downstream that deters the take up of drugs we even see this in the united states we should be doing better than we are in terms of the number of people who are receiving drugs that could prevent the infection of hiv in the first place these drugs exist but because of their high cost many people are not taking them and i mean the thing is it was originally thought that this was the exclusive demain of homosexual men and intravenous drug users but the has the profile of the disease changed over the years. oh yeah i think it certainly has i mean i think that it's a chevy something it could strike anyone obviously and i think we've come a long way as a society and recognizing it doesn't really matter what your lifestyle is you know
9:41 pm
this is a deadly disease that needs to be treated and that that that deserving of our our full support and our of our health our for health systems and to make sure that drugs are affordable for all but in the united states at least there's complications in terms of how pricing occurs that often make the drugs difficult for people to afford so why is that then in the united states so part of the reason is that in the united states we pay more for health care in general we pay more for doctor salaries be more for specialists we pay more for drugs part of it these drugs are very good and generally speaking when something is good a drug company can charge more to get a reasonable return on their investment the problem is we're talking about tens of thousands of dollars for a year of treatment and as someone in the end is going to pay for that and even if that ends up being insurers that's passed on to folks in terms of higher premiums
9:42 pm
if it's medicaid or medicare which are the state insurance programs the federal insurance programs in the united states then those are going to be passed on to taxpayers yet but and this is a long complicated list i'm not so i'm not entirely clear what you're saying though you say you suggesting that this is a bad thing or just a fact of life a reflection of of life in the united states that they are you suggesting that the price of these vital drugs should be brought down by one means or another in order to people access to them. absolutely yeah the price should be brought down but you know it's a complicated balance on the one hand these drug companies have invested large sums of money in developing these drugs they need to be able to get a reasonable return on the other hand the returns that they're getting right now you know what i spent i read was two hundred billion dollars in profits for the top six hiv manufacturers from two thousand and twelve to twenty sixteen that's far outpacing what research and development costs are and the problem is we don't
9:43 pm
really know actually what those costs exactly are because the drug companies keep that information very private so it's not clear how much of the money of this is being spent on this is going to were developing new drugs and how much is actually going toward marketing and other costs that aren't really directly benefiting patients all right neal may thank you very much indeed for joining us live from washington. thank you so much that rights groups in the u.s. going to the supremes to try to stop changes to the census they say that plans to add a question asking whether someone is an american citizen is a deliberate attempt to intimidate immigrants gabriel that is. has the story from new york the question seems straightforward enough are you a u.s. citizen and for the first time ever the u.s. government wants to force everyone to answer that question on the two thousand and
9:44 pm
twenty u.s. census but yet siri tovar is not a citizen and is worried about answering it the time ministration has showed me not to trust them the twenty six year old was brought to the u.s. illegally by her parents when she was just two years old and even though she's lived in new york all of her life since then she's worried a no answer could make her a target for deportation. it's happened before and in her neighborhood people have put up signs on the doors cautioning immigration officers known as ice agents not to enter without a judicial warrant. so the fear is real the fear and i can manage this is real i for that out as being undocumented person i can be targeted i can have agents outside of my house because in the census i said i am undocumented and i gave them my apartment number but it a congressional hearing last month republican lawmakers said they supported the idea of asking everybody if they are
9:45 pm
