The Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and STOP AIDS NOW! developed this Community Guide in response to the World Health Organization (WHO) 2013 Consolidated guidelines on the use of antiretroviral drugs for treating and preventing HIV. It aims to assist community leaders and civil society organisations to:

  • better understand the new WHO recommendations and guide country-level discussions on priorities (within civil society and between civil society and government)
  • ensure the meaningful participation of communities most affected by HIV in national decision-making and planning
  • advocate for any changes or further research necessary to adapt recommendations to suit their country context
  • mobilise and prepare communities for the implementation of new recommendations.

The guide is designed to be updated regularly, and extra modules will be added as further guidelines are issued by WHO, such as those on key populations and adolescents.


You can download the modules here.

“Whoever designed the guide deserves a round of applause because it is really great and we will be putting it to use right away. The question is how can we use this simplification as a model for getting information such as this to the commmunity.”
