What is HIV Care and Support?
As more people benefit from anti-retroviral medicines in the developing world, more people with AIDS live longer and require continuing support to manage their condition and take their medication properly. Medicines therefore need to go hand in hand with care and support. This event, chaired by Sally Joss, from the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development featured speakers from VSO, Mildmay Hospital and the Care and Support Working Group of the Consortium. It looked at what a comprehensive package of care and support should include.
