Is the resource available on the Internet?

Many countries have begun to decentralize HIV treatment to primary health care (PHC) centers to decrease the burden of providing HIV services at existing facilities while increasing access to treatment. The purpose of this technical brief is to assist national program planners, stakeholders, and implementers in designing, planning, and implementing the decentralization process and in providing ART services at PHC facilities, with the ultimate goal of achieving universal access to treatment and care in generalized HIV epidemic settings.
