SA HIV Clinicians Society Updates Guidelines for Adult Antiretroviral Therapy
Since the release of the previous guidelines published in the Southern African Journal of HIV Medicine in 2014 and a subsequent update in 2015 explaining when to initiate antiretroviral therapy (ART), the scale-up of ART in southern Africa has continued.

These guidelines are intended for countries in the southern Africa region, which vary between lower and middle income.
