These guidelines describe strategies to manage the health problems of AIDS patients at the different levels of care provision in order to ensure a continuum of care. For each level of care, a care strategy is proposed with the necessary equipment and drugs to respond to the health needs of people living with HIV/AIDS. A syndromic approach was used in producing this document, using algorithms that have been adapted from existing WHO guidelines. Different treatment options are described for a range of conditions and in the context of resource-limited environments.
