Potent antiretroviral drug regimens have provided new opportunities to treat patients with HIV disease effectively. Yet, the true potential of the combination therapies can be realized only if people living with HIV adhere to the difficult treatment regimens.

Maximizing adherence and achieving the full potential of the antiretroviral therapies in practice settings demand multidimensional initiatives that address complex behavioral and biomedical issues.
