These guidelines provide guidance on the diagnosis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, the use of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs for treating and preventing HIV infection and the care of people living with HIV. They are structured along the continuum of HIV testing, prevention, treatment and care.

The 2016 consolidated guidelines on the use of antiretroviral drugs represent an important step towards achieving the goal that the world set itself a decade ago, universal access to ARV drugs for treating and preventing HIV, and the ultimate goal of ending the HIV epidemic as a major public health threat by 2030.
