SUSA06 Care and Treatment for People with Chronic Conditions: What Can We Learn from the HIV Experience? A Health Systems Perspective
  Non-Commercial Satellite
Venue: Session Room 8
Time: 22.07.2012, 11:15 - 13:15
Co-Chairs: Richard Horton, United Kingdom
Ariel Pablos-Méndez, United States
Masato Mugitani, Japan
Organiser: World Health Organization (WHO) and The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS)
 
 
Advances in HIV care and treatment that keep people alive while controlling, although not curing, their conditions have led to growing numbers of people surviving with chronic illnesses including the HIV/AIDS condition itself. This epidemiological transition, coupled with a fast growing number of people with other chronic diseases has considerable implications for health systems and societies. The complex nature of chronic conditions requires a multifaceted response. Many countries are now experimenting new approaches often somewhat inspired by the HIV response, to deliver treatment, care and support services in ways that meet the complex needs of people with chronic disorders. The satellite will examine the shifts in service delivery involved in addressing HIV as a chronic condition and synthesize country success stories in tackling chronic conditions in different circumstances. From an international perspective, it will address the prerequisites for effective policies and management of chronic conditions.
