Care at your clinic

Your HIV clinic will monitor you and offer appropriate treatment and care in accordance with national guidelines. All clinics should provide monitoring of CD4 cell count and viral load (see Key tests to monitor HIV), and results should be made available to you within two weeks of having blood tests. You should also have other tests as appropriate to monitor your HIV-related and non-HIV-related healthcare needs; for instance, HIV resistance tests, monitoring of cardiovascular risk factors, blood pressure monitoring, screening for viral hepatitis and monitoring of kidney function.

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
