Antiretroviral Treatment in the Spotlight: A Public Health Analysis in Latin America and the Caribbean, 2012
(2012; 52 pages)


The region of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) has led the world in the provision of antiretroviral treatment (ART). After three decades of the epidemic, we are submersed in a major international financial crisis, which has led to a withdrawal of external assistance for HIV from the region. The objective of this report, then, is to take a critical look at antiretroviral (ARV) treatment programs, assessing their main areas of sustainability and vulnerability, in order to make recommendations for improving them in the region. The goal is to hasten the transition to a new phase of ARV treatment programs with a public health perspective in the framework of Treatment 2.0.
