Adherence to the Continuum of Care

In 2017, the US Department of Health and Human Services Guidelines for the Use of Antiretroviral Agents in Adults and Adolescents Living with HIV revised and renamed the Adherence to Antiretroviral Therapy section to expand the discussion of adherence beyond treatment.1 The new section—Adherence to the Continuum of Care—considers a range of steps including HIV testing, linkage to care, initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART), adherence to treatment, retention in care, and virologic suppression, and encourages collaboration among healthcare professionals and multidisciplinary care teams to better understand challenges at each step to help keep patients engaged in care.
