A Public Health Approach to Antiretroviral Treatment: Overcoming Constraints. WHO (2003)

A Public Health Approach to Antiretroviral Treatment: Overcoming Constraints. WHO (2003) A growing, global movement of people living with HIV/AIDS and their advocates, civil society organizations, health professionals, philanthropic foundations, international agencies, governments and private corporations is now working to reverse this injustice. The efforts of this move- ment have helped to shape a global consensus that allowing millions of deaths from a treatable disease is intolerable and that prevention strategies alone are insufficient to contain the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Treatment and care are therefore the crucial, missing link in the global response because, by alleviating suffering, reducing stigma and mitigating the economic and social impact of disease, they can reinforce the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Scaling up Antiretroviral Therapy in Resource-Limited Settings: Guidelines for a Public Health Approach. WHO (2002)

Scaling up Antiretroviral Therapy in Resource-Limited Settings: Guidelines for a Public Health Approach. WHO (2002) Less than a decade ago, someone living with HIV/AIDS had little hope.HIV infection brought a steady inexorable decline towards the complete destruction of the immune system and death. The introduction of ARVs in 1996 was a turning point for hundreds of thousands of people with access to sophisticated health care systems. Although they cannot cure HIV/AIDS, antiretrovirals (ARVs) have dramatically reduced mortality and morbidity, prolonged lives, and improved the quality of life of many people living with HIV/AIDS.

HIV Prevention Needs and Successes: A Tale of Three Countries. UNAIDS (2001)

HIV Prevention Needs and Successes: A Tale of Three Countries. UNAIDS (2001) HIV prevention is necessary even in the presence of advanced antiretroviral thera- pies. The cost of the drugs, the limited access to these therapies (and to drugs for oppor- tunistic infections in general), and the development of drug resistance remain important issues, even in the wealthiest countries. In many areas, prevention programmes and information need to be strengthened as many people mistakenly view antiretroviral thera- pies as a cure and therefore continue to engage in risky behaviour.

Summary Report: Health Care Provider Survey in Gujarat, India. DFID, Gujarat State AIDS Control Society and FHI (2001)

Summary Report: Health Care Provider Survey in Gujarat, India. DFID, Gujarat State AIDS Control Society and FHI (2001) Sexualy Transmitted Infections (STIs) have been a major public health problem in all the developing countries. India had a National STD Control Programme even before we got our independence. The issue of STI control, however, did not receive the due attention till the programme was merged with the National AIDS Control Programme developed after the emergence of HIV/AIDS as a significant public health problem. HIV/AIDS has now, very rightly, been recognised as an important developmental challenge with a potential to adversely affect the entire socio-economic infrastructure of the nation.

Consensus on Antiretroviral Treatment. Ministry of Health Malaysia, Academy of Medicine of Malaysia and Malaysian Society of Infectious Diseases and Chemotherapy (2001) Recent advances in the knowledge of HIV pathogenesis, the rapid development of potent antiretroviral agents coupled with the availability of more sensitive laboratory tools such as the viral load assays have greatly altered the management of HIV-infected patients. Guidelines for the use of the increasingly complex armamentarium of antiretroviral agents, including new classes of drugs, have been published in many parts of the developed world.
