Médecins Sans Frontières, Solidarité thérapeutique hospitalière en réseau
(Esther), and Solidarité thérapeutique contre le sida (SOLTHIS) convened a
meeting in Geneva, Switzerland in September 2011of HIV treatment experts to
look at antiretroviral regimens and strategies to support the further scale
up of treatment and long-term sustainability in resource limited settings.

The meeting objectives were to:

   - Develop a set of recommendations for sequencing existing and pipeline
   ARV drugs for adults and children in resource-limited settings in the short
   term (one to two years from now), in the medium term (three to six years
   from now) and long term (seven to ten years from now);
   - Define the specifications of the regimen and formulations that will be
   needed in the future to treat HIV in the community; and
   - Develop recommendations and principles to guide treatment and
   diagnostic strategies and an operational research agenda
