Christine Stegling, executive director of the International Treatment Preparedness Coalition (ITPC), discusses the importance of community activism in continuing to improve HIV treatment access, writing, “There is a need for community activists to monitor service provision at a time when national governments increasingly take responsibility for the delivery of HIV services. We need to repoliticize the AIDS movement to counter the complacency and bureaucratization of community engagement” (9/22).
