  • Summary:
  • Chapter 25 focuses on providing healthcare for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA) in resource-constrained countries. Health facilities in these areas often lack the resources to offer high-quality medical care to the general public—much less meet the complex demands of AIDS-related morbidity and mortality. The challenge of improving PLHA’s quality of life requires a more comprehensive or holistic approach—an approach that meets the medical, psychological and social needs of people and families living with HIV. Strategy and policy development can be linked with development of a managed, rational system of care and referral that supports community-based initiatives and implementing agencies should integrate family and community support programs into health, education, agriculture, water and sanitation sectors.
