The is the sub-Saharan Africa edition of Teen Talk, a question and answer guide for HIV-positive adolescents, which was adapted from the Botswana version, published in 2010 by the Botswana-Baylor Children's Clinical Centre of Excellence Teen Club Program, and the original version, which was published in the United States in 2004.
These treatment guidelines serve as a framework for selecting the most potent and feasible first-line and second-line ART regimens for the care of HIV-infected infants and children.
The purpose of this training program is to address the need for peer educators to actively engage with PLWHAs in enhancing entry into HIV care, promoting antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence, and facilitating long-term retention in HIV care.
These guidelines are aimed at clinicians and community-based HIV prevention providers about early initiation of ART for personal and public health benefits. They include information about ARV treament for prevention of HIV transmission and adherence to ART treatment.
These guidelines spell out why strict adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) is key to sustained HIV suppression, reduced risk of drug resistance, improved overall health, quality of life, and survival, as well as decreased risk of HIV transmission.
