These interim guidelines for first-level facility health workers focus on HIV care and ARV therapy.

Topics include HIV diagnosis, clinical care provision, prophylaxis, ARV therapy, management of chronic problems and administration of medications

Notes:This is one in a series of five booklets with interim guidelines released for country adaptation and use to help with the emergency scale-up of antiretroviral therapy (ART) in resource-limited settings. These interim guidelines will be revised soon based on early implementation experience.
