2012 Botswana National HIV & AIDS Treatment Guidelines

he 2012 edition of Botswana National HIV/AIDS Treatment Guidelines introduces a new level of optimized care for those infected with HIV. With expanded access to ART for adults and children at higher CD4 counts, more HIV positive individuals will be provided with life sustaining treatment and benefit from earlier ART initiation. Improvements in the delivery of PMTCT with the transition to Triple ART Prophylaxis, will also go far to ensure that 2016 indeed becomes the beginning of an AIDS free generation.
