This chapter presents a vision of the outcomes that must be achieved in the next decade of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). It argues that the massive efforts and investments needed to achieve these outcomes are justified by the present and future threat posed by AIDS, and that these outcomes are feasible, as demonstrated by the equally unprecedented advances made in the first decade of HAART. It recommends strategies to help ensure that these vital outcomes are realized in the decade ahead.

Keywords: highly active antiretroviral therapy; HIV/AIDS; antiretroviral therapy; HAART
