This chapter reviews France's response to its HIV epidemic. France's response to HIV involved many actors including those from government, non-government organizations, clinicians, and social scientists, among others, and produced responses ranging from access to care to the protection of patients' rights. As in other European countries, the availability of HAART has led to a significant reduction in mortality as well as improvement in the health status of all HIV-infected patients. As a result, HIV is considered to have moved from an acute to a chronic disease in France. The fact that most patients have been covered by social security has been a key factor in effective treatment efforts.
