Abstract

Will the impact of routine HIV testing, which forms part of the government?s national HIV counselling and testing campaign, lead to resource constraints at state antiretroviral therapy facilities? And if so, who will decide who receives antiretroviral drugs and who doesn?t? ADLAI DAVIDS and LINDI COETZEE explore these questions.
