Developed by the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC), the ACT Toolkit supports communities to realize their rights to optimal HIV treatment; which means effective, affordable treatment with minimal side effects.
Topics covered in the Toolkit include: the science of HIV, the relationship between human rights and HIV treatment, and financing for health. It also highlights opportunities and barriers to scaling up treatment, as well as provides practical guidance on how to mobilize communities to increase access to treatment.
The second edition of the toolkit, ACT Toolkit 2.0 (PDF) is produced in collaboration with the AIDS and Rights Alliance for Southern Africa (ARASA). It includes updated information on HIV treatment guidelines and treatment monitoring, as well as new modules on HIV co-morbidities, including HCV, TB and noncommunicable diseases, such as cancer.
