Abstract

KEY MESSAGES

Communities must be at the center of every aspect in the fight against HIV/AIDS: They must be involved in all aspects of partnering to prevention, treatment, and care service. Advocacy begins with the community in order to mobilize resources and to engage and involve key populations in the process toward an AIDS free Africa.

HIV testing and treatment services need to be more inclusive of the “treat-all” concept, with increased responsiveness to the needs of people living with HIV (PLHIV).

Communities must also be at the forefront of research to identify barriers to accessing services.
