1.2 Objectives

The objectives of these guidelines are:

  • to provide updated, evidence-based clinical recommendations outlining a public health approach to providing ARV drugs for HIV prevention and treatment in all age groups and populations in the context of the continuum of HIV care, focusing on settings with limited health system capacity and resources;
  • to provide guidance on key operational and service delivery issues that need to be addressed to increase access to HIV services, strengthen the continuum of HIV care and further integrate the provision of ARV drugs into health systems; and
  • to provide programmatic guidance for decision-makers and planners at the national level on adapting, setting priorities for and implementing the clinical and operational recommendations and monitoring their implementation and impact.
