Slide 3: PLUS: Care activities of intermediate complexity or cost

PLUS: Care activities of intermediate complexity or cost

· Active TB case finding and TB prophylaxis

· Systemic antifungals

· Treatment of Kaposi’s sarcoma and cervical cancer

· Treatment of HSV with acyclovir

· Prevention of MTCT

· Post-exposure prophylaxis


· Funding of community efforts that reduce the impact of HIV infection

What might this "something more" be? This slide sets out some of the deliverables of intermediate complexity or cost, such as TB prophylaxis, the use of (expensive) systemic antifungals, the use of antiretrovirals to reduce the transmission of HIV from infected mothers to their child, or to health care workers when they have an accidental exposure to HIV infected materials.

But what people living with HIV really hope for is access to the advanced care options that people in developed countries take for granted.
