South Africa is committed to attaining the UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets to control the HIV epidemic by providing quality healthcare services using highly effective antiretroviral treatment (ART). To support the achievement of this goal, the ART clinical guidelines have been updated to include more optimised treatment regimens for children, adolescents and adults, as well as pregnant women living with HIV/AIDS, TB and other common opportunistic infections.

The goal of this course is to increase awareness about key changes in the HIV Clinical Management Guidelines and improve healthcare worker knowledge on the use of optimised regimens for people living with HIV and the alignment with differentiated models of care.
