This chapter looks back at some of the milestones on the road to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in the developed and developing world, recognizing the remarkable progress that has been achieved. It also acknowledges that the accumulated short-term experience may be neither sufficient nor appropriate when facing the long-term challenges raised by the epidemic, and the need for effective large-scale access to prevention, treatment, and care for all those in need worldwide.
