About the book
Since the emergence of HIV three decades ago, progress has been made which has transformed it from a highly fatal disease to a curable chronic illness. Several strategies have been applied to scale up prevention and treatment. The biomedical interventions in particular and antiviral newer drugs have drastically improved the quality of life. The recent scaling up of these interventions such as the 90-90-90 strategy has halted the spread. Despite this progress, the drivers of new infections are still intricately intertwined with the social-cultural fabric of society. Although attempts to get a reliable vaccine to remain elusive, new strategies and interventions are being tried to improve social behavior to reduce risks.
This book examines some of these updated strategies and interventions for scaling up prevention, care, treatment, and stigma reduction and strengthen an integrated national framework for scaling up programs and mechanisms for quality HIV/AIDS services. It will also mobilize both human and financial resources for the sustained elimination of HIV/AIDS globally.
