South Africa's national treatment program for HIV/AIDS is the largest effort of its kind in the world, treating some 2 million adults and children with antiretroviral therapy. Dr. Francois Venter, a leading HIV clinician and researcher, has been instrumental in the development of the program over the past decade and continues to be one of the most important voices in the country for improving and advancing HIV treatment. He will talk about recent changes to treatment guidelines and service delivery and describe some of the problems and opportunities facing the program in coming years.
