Welcome to the global HIV Policy Watch website. Revising policies and changing service delivery to reflect the latest science and public health practice is critical for the HIV response. You will find the latest published official national HIV treatment policies. Please be aware that there are many countries that may have reported or announced changes in national HIV policy without issuing revised guidelines or official circulars -- we show these countries on a separate map since these are countries that may issue official guidelines soon.

The website was updated on June 15, 2017 with new or updated policies from India, Jamaica, Lao PDR, Liberia, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines and Zimbabwe.

To stay up-to-date and provide readers with the latest official published policies, our site relies on our members and has been built through frequent internet searches and direct contributions from viewers like you. Please submit any missing updated published national HIV policies and/or official circulars using the button below.

Thank you for helping us to build this site-we sincerely appreciate everyone's efforts to make this the world's largest crowd-sourced HIV treatment policy data bank.

  9. Graphical representation of data

For 2010 to the present, using the internet we identified 52 national care continuum that represented 59% of the 2013 global estimate of people living with HIV.We update the search on a quarterly basis and also incorporate newly published continuum as they become available in the public domain (please send and/or see the website submission tab if you have a new public domain continuum to bring to our attention).

We reviewed the methodology for collecting data on or estimating the following four key steps in the treatment cascade: 1. Estimated number of people living with HIV, 2. Estimated number of people living with HIV diagnosed as HIV-positive, 3. Estimated number of people living with HIV receiving ART, and 4. Estimated number of people living with HIV with suppressed or undetectable viral load.
