HIV resistance to anti-retroviral therapy in sub-Saharan Africa: Is it time for individualized treatment to succeed test and treat strategy?

Author(s): Jan René Nkeck*

The prevention in the development of HIV resistance to ART is a priority in the management of HIV epidemics, there is therefore a need for Sub-Saharan African countries who have the greatest prevalence of HIV infection, to develop personalized strategies in order to reduce the rising of ART resistance. The first requirements are to increase knowledge about ART resistance and evaluate its molecular epidemiology, improve diagnostic tools and surveillance of ART resistance, and analyze the relative impact of the “Test and Treat” strategy on the occurrence of ART resistance. This could lead to the adoption of an individualized ART protocol to succeed the current management strategy for Sub-Saharan African countries.
