Community perspective on the 2013 WHO Guidelines

In the 2013 Consolidated Guidelines on the Use of Antiretroviral Drugs for Treating and Preventing HIV Infection (2013 Guidelines), the World Health Organization (WHO) takes a
welcomed step in recommending that people living with HIV everywhere be offered a standard of antiretroviral treatment and care that is closer to what is available in resource-rich countries.

Together with STOP AIDS NOW and the HIV Alliance, we have summarised the guidelines and noted recommendations and key issues from a community and civil society perspective.
