South Africa - National Antiretroviral Treatment Guidelines, First Edition, 2004
(2004; 51 pages)


These guidelines serve to assist the clinic team in the management of patients on antiretroviral drugs as outlined in the Comprehensive Plan for HIV and AIDS Care, Management and Treatment. The approach adopted is that of the continuum of care, with a holistic patient focus in an integrated health system.

This system will be integrated from primary to tertiary levels, as well as from the clinic to the community and from pre-diagnosis to palliation whichever is appropriate. The focus is at the primary level within the context of the district health system being implemented throughout the country. These guidelines will be revised as necessary to reflect the changing world of the treatment of HIV. This will ensure the highest possible standard of care for all South Africans...
