HIV programming

Programmes designed to tackle the global HIV epidemic largely fall under two main branches, prevention and treatment.

A myriad of HIV prevention initiatives are needed to stop HIV transmission among different key affected populations, as well as the general public.

Antiretroviral treatment is effective when adhered to correctly, but access is still limited. Ensuring that people follow the treatment cascade and that treatment options are tailored to different groups is essential.

Global treatment targets are ambitious and programmes must be scaled up.
