ABSTRACT
The increasing burden of HIV care threatens to overwhelm health-care providers and systems in the developing world. Clinical pharmacologists, applying the training that they possess in regulatory science, rational prescribing, and teaching therapeutics, could improve the delivery of care in that setting. However, the shortage of clinical pharmacologists and the emigration of health-care providers limit the ability to take advantage of this approach. Possible solutions are outlined in this Commentary.Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics (2009); 85, 6, 579–581 doi:10.1038/clpt.2009.54
