The article describes some of the challenges in the use of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) from the perspective of HIV resistance. It defines drug resistance in HIV as a reduced susceptibility to a specific antiretroviral (ARV) and has been documented since the introduction of ARV therapy. The types and mechanism of resistance are described. Also noted are the characteristics that facilitate the development of resistance.
