Abstract: Since the advent of combination antiretroviral therapy (ART), the mortality attributable to HIV infection has been reduced by 80%. Newer antiretroviral agents are highly efficacious, have minimal side effects as compared to older drugs, and can be formulated as combination tablets, which reduces patients' pill burden. Despite these advances, 680,000 people died of AIDS-related illnesses worldwide in 2020. The National ART and Monitoring Recommendations by the National HIV Programme are created to guide physicians on the prescribing of ART based on the patients' needs. These recommendations are based on international guidelines and tailored to the local context and unique domestic considerations. It is hoped that with the publication of these recommendations, the care of people living with HIV can be enhanced, bringing us closer to the ending of HIV in our lifetime.
