The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on accessing HIV care: A case report


The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has had an enormous impact on the provision of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) services amongst people living with HIV. Many people have adopted different health-seeking behaviour in alignment with the lockdown provisions during the COVID-19 pandemic. These lockdown regulations have had a huge impact on healthcare access for people on chronic medication.

The impact on HIV programmes as a result of the interruption in ART could be bigger than the HIV pandemic alone.
