Since the release of the previous guidelines published in the Southern African Journal of HIV Medicine in 2014 and a subsequent update in 2015 explaining when to initiate antiretroviral therapy (ART), the scale-up of ART in southern Africa has continued. New antiretroviral drugs have become available with improved efficacy, safety, and more robustness. These guidelines are intended for countries in the southern Africa region, which vary between lower and middle income.
