Rates of HIV viral load can reach very high levels (up to 10) in the 4-6 week period immediately after infection, and as the immune system becomes very weak years after infection.HIV viral load is strongly related to infectivity, with very high levels associated with increased risk of the virus being passed during sexual contact or other exposure.Services must be provided through a home care agency which has enrolled in the program.APIC can pay for commercial health insurance premiums for ADAP eligible clients.In Southern and Eastern Africa, reductions in HIV deaths have been rapid, and strongly linked to the roll-out of ART programmes since the early 2000s.Between 20, there was a 62% decline in the number of deaths attributable to HIV infection in this region.

The AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) provides free medications for the treatment of HIV/AIDS and opportunistic infections.

Increasingly, ART can be given as a single fixed-dose combination single pill once daily with very few side effects.
