Tanzania has a Care and Treatment Plan for People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA) as one of its Strategies in the Health Sector response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Starting and scaling up of the delivery of ART requires the development of AIDS care and treatment guidelines, to ensure that the quality of care and treatment services is standardized throughout the country. Quality, effective and efficient care and treatment can be provided if careful attention is paid to the following:
Intensified and sustained efforts of identifying HIV infected individuals
Developing a multi-disciplinary team approach to life long disease management including treatment
Developing linkages between the related services within facilities and communities, to ensure a smooth flow of patients across a continuum of care including prevention through a proper referral system.
