Recommendation Discussed in This Chapter


Recommendation 6-1: The U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator should continue to promote and support a community-based, family-centered model of care in order to enhance and coordinate supportive care services for people living with HIV/AIDS, with special emphasis on orphans, other vulnerable children, and people requiring end-of-life care. This model should include integration as appropriate with prevention and treatment programs and linkages with other public-sector and nongovernmental organization services within and outside of the health sector, such as primary health care, nutrition support, education, social work, and the work of agencies facilitating income generation.
