Abstract

"Treatment with antiretroviral therapy has yielded remarkable results in affluent countries and some middle-income countries such as Brazil. Lessons can be learned from these examples, but this publication reviews the experiences of ARV programmes already underway in countries with very severe HIV epidemics but severely constrained resources as in most of Africa and part of the Caribbean. The publication aims to show how some of the key policy issues for scaling up HIV/AIDS treatment have been dealt with and to identify
common elements that should be considered by everyone seeking to provide HIV/AIDS care on a significant scale."
