Every person diagnosed with HIV has the right to and should be offered 5 Key Support Services:
- Effective clinical management, including access to treatment
- Psychosocial support
- Counselling about the prevention of transmission of HIV to others, including the role of treatment in reducing the risk of transmission
- Support to ensure that all at risk partners are identified and tested for HIV
