Chapter 2


Conclusion

Looking beyond 2005, WHO, UNAIDS and their partners will be developing a new strategic approach to maintain the gains of 3 by 5 and to extend them, using sustainable financing and delivery mechanisms, so that antiretroviral therapy becomes part of the primary health care package provided at every health centre and clinic. Mobilizing the resources and building the chronic care infrastructure needed to deliver lifelong treatment in primary care settings at the periphery will make lasting changes to health systems. As the next chapter explains, moving forward successfully in these directions will also depend on the close partnerships being forged between the formal health sector and many communities and groups, especially people living with HIV/AIDS.
