Forum report: Quality of HIV care – closing the gap

Report and presentations from a workshop organised by the Forum for Collaborative HIV Research: Quality of HIV Care – Closing the Gap in December 2002 are now available to download.

Participants were asked to better define the components of quality care for persons with HIV, with special emphasis on how this relates to low-volume settings of HIV care. This report summarises the key themes that emerged focusing on the systems of care and support that need to surround both the individual clinician and the individual person receiving HIV care.
