For AIDS 2018 conference, a sattellite session was organized on Tuesday 24 July 2018  as part of the OPP-ERA project to discuss current advances in access to viral load testing in resource-limited countries. During the satellite, issues and solutions  to allow more HIV-infected patients to access viral load tests were also discussed. Today, it is possible to ensure that the treatment against HIV is effective and that the patient does not develop therapeutic resistances through a  viral load test's results. Yet only 4 out of 10 patients have access to the test in resource-limited countries.
