Abstract

"MSF is in the process of adapting its approach to AIDS treatment to better fit the real-life conditions faced in developing countries. Our projects are using treatments with fewer pills, relying less on sophisticated laboratory tests, taking better advantage of the skills and resources of existing health care professionals such as clinical officers and nurses, and decentralising the point of care to district hospitals and health posts. MSF believes its experiences can offer some valuable lessons to countries’ efforts to scale-up treatment. MSF also believes the primary responsibility for scale-up needs to lie with national governments."
