Hogan DR, Salomon JA. Prevention and treatment of human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in resource-limited settings. Bull World Health Organization. 2005 Feb;83(2):135-143.

This paper presents a summary of the debate over varying global responses to the prevention and treatment of the HIV/AIDS epidemic as well as evidence on several interventions designed to prevent the spread of HIV infection, including voluntary counselling and testing, treatment for sexually transmitted infections and prevention of mother-to-child transmission. Current antiretroviral therapy response rates and survival rates are discussed along with adherence, drug resistance, behavioural change and epidemiological impact.
