Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Treatment Preparedness in Thailand. WHO, Golbal Fund, Talp, et al (2004)

Involvement of People Living with HIV/AIDS in Treatment Preparedness in Thailand. WHO, Golbal Fund, Talp, et al (2004) In 2001 the Thai Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) launched an antiretroviral therapy (ART) programme. A decentralized approach was adopted and treatment was initially provided to 1500 people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA) in 112 govern- ment hospitals. Previously, health care for PLHA had been provided from specialist centres. By February 2004, 23 000 PLHA were being treated in 860 hospitals.

Guidelines for HIV Diagnosis and Monitoring of Antiretroviral Therapy. WHO (2004)

Guidelines for HIV Diagnosis and Monitoring of Antiretroviral Therapy. WHO (2004) The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has changed the social, moral, economic and health fabric of the world in a short span. Today HIV/AIDS is the greatest health crisis faced by the global community. Till date, this pandemic has killed nearly 30 million people. More than 40 million are living with HIV, and to this pool, an additional 14 000 are added everyday. It is expected that, if not treated, 3 million people will die every year of HIV/AIDS. It is estimated that of the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in developing countries, 6 million people require antiretroviral therapy (ART). Most of these are in 34 high burden countries of Africa and Asia. Of these, only 400 000 are currently receiving ART.

National Guideline for the Use of ART in Adults and Adolescents. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2003)

National Guideline for the Use of ART in Adults and Adolescents. National Centre for HIV/AIDS Dermatology and STD Cambodia (2003) The escalating HIV epidemic in Cambodia is now producing an expanding need for HIV/AIDS care, as people progress to advanced and symptomatic HIV disease. This need for HIV/AIDS care and support will increase considerably over the next decade, as each year approximately 20 000 people will develop AIDS and die unless expanded interventions are available. The limited resources of the Cambodian health care system will be further stretched due to this impact of HIV/AIDS on care needs. The presence of such a large number of HIV infections in the population creates an inescapable increase in demand for health care.

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.

HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment: A Clinical Course for People Caring for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. FHI-Impact and USAID (2003)

HIV/AIDS Care and Treatment: A Clinical Course for People Caring for Persons Living with HIV/AIDS. FHI, Impact and USAID (2003) Only about five percent of the 30 million people in poor countries who need treatment for HIV infec- tion are receiving it. As the need for treatment grows, so does the demand. The June 2001 Declaration of Commitment by the United Nations General Assembly states that “Prevention, care, support and treatment for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS are mutually reinforcing elements of an effective response and must be integrated in a comprehensive approach to combat the epidemic.” Encouraged by global support for expanding access to treatment and by a decrease in the price of antiretroviral drugs, programs are increasingly seeking ways to add a treatment component to their prevention, care, and support services.
