Sizwe Nzima was a high school student in Cape Town, South Africa, when he would pick up the medicine for his HIV-positive grandparents, who had difficulty traveling to the clinic themselves. Because of the long lines, Nzima usually waited hours and often made multiple trips to the clinic before and after school. So there he was, sitting on a hard wooden bench at the clinic one day about four years ago, when he had an idea: Why not start an HIV medicine delivery service?

Interim Revision of Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in HIV-1-Infected Adults and Adolescents

This interim revision of the Guidelines includes a revised section on Hepatitis C Virus (HCV)/HIV Coinfection, with emphasis on considerations for use of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in patients who also receive treatment for HCV infection.
