CONCEPTS OF ANTI-HIV THERAPY & ITS APPLICATIONS IN RESOURCE POOR SETTINGSAbstract
HIV since its invention has become global burden. In last two decades of the HIV prevalence many anti-retroviral drugs have been developed. Poor countries like India have started central government funded programmes to tackle the menace of the HIV. These programmes have been started because many people cannot afford costly ART drugs. In this review article, we have discussed current ART regimens and the new drugs which have been introduced. Also we have discussed traditional systems of medicine which are practised in India and their potential use in the HIV treatment.
