HIV treatment and care in resource-constrained environments: Challenges for the next decade

This paper underlines several key challenges in HIV care in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC).  Challenges include ensuring long-term financing, increasing ART coverage, decreasing early mortality on antiretroviral therapy (ART), moving on from WHO 2006 to WHO 2010 guidelines, reducing lost-to-follow-up rates, managing successful ART over the long-term, and coping with unforeseen events.
