Policy on Equity Access to ART

This policy sets out the position of the National AIDS Commission on equity in access to ART.  Equity comprises elements of an assessment of vulnerability (in terms of HIV infection and illness) and disadvantage in terms of access to care and treatment or ability to cope with the impact of the illness. Furthermore, in a health system where resources are severely limited, provision of ART will also impact on "equity" for the provision of essential health services.
