Global HIV treatment coverage has steadily increased over the last two decades – but it is clear that, for many communities, treatment is still not OPTIMAL. In 2016, many people still do not know if their treatment is working. The price of ARVs in middle-income countries is preventing access to medicines that are more potent, easier to take and that have fewer side effects. We need access to affordable, quality treatment now! This forum will outline concrete actions that can make medicines affordable and scale-up access to treatment monitoring, building on lived experiences from our community-driven campaigns 'Make Medicines Affordable' and 'Be Healthy – Know Your Viral Load'. Participants will hear from key experts in these fields, contribute to the discussion, and pose questions to key decision-makers. The session will include a short campaign film, moderated panel debate, and catered cocktail hour! Join us and advocate for universal access to OPTIMAL treatment!
