Simplified, standardised guidelines for the delivery of HIV care at first-level primary healthcare facilities or district clinics in under-resourced areas have been developed. These are presented in online training modules that can be accessed at www.who.int/hiv/pub/imai/primary/en/index.html.

Also available is "A guide to monitoring and evaluation for collaborative TB/HIV activities" that was produced in 2009 by WHO, The US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, and UNAIDS. The case is made that high morbidity and mortality from TB among people living with HIV makes TB case detection, treatment and prevention a priority for national AIDS control programmes. This guide can be accessed online at www.who.int/hiv/pub/tb/monitoring/en/index.html.

These publications are available in English and French.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
