The Activist Toolkit
Campaigning for Routine Viral Load Monitoring
The aim of the Activist Toolkit on Campaign for Routine Viral Load Monitoring is to enable and mobilize PLHIV and activists to use science and evidence to persuasively and actively advocate to decision makers and service providers for access to, and availability of, affordable routine viral load testing for PLHIV. The Toolkit aims to inform and show the importance and value of routine viral load testing and to train community activists to passionately advocate about access to viral load testing for PLHIV, including those from key populations.

Global Policy, Local Disconnects: A Look Into the Implementation of the 2013 HIV Treatment Guidelines
One year after the release of the updated “WHO Consolidated guidelines on the use of antiretroviral drugs for treating and preventing HIV infection”, ITPC investigated what the reality was on the ground for people living with HIV. In the 2013 update, WHO recommended that all people living with HIV be offered the opportunity to start treatment immediately after their diagnosis. “Global Policy, Local Disconnect” draws on ITPC’s nine Regional Networks and ARASA partners in Southern Africa, to survey a cross-section of people living with HIV, service providers and other stakeholders across the globe, to uncover the real story of access to HIV treatment.

ACHIEVEMENTS OF 2013
We are proud to present ITPC’s first global annual report, highlighting the many achievements and challenges of 2013, our 10th anniversary year.

people, including those who are the most disenfranchised.
