Treat all people living with HIV, offer antiretrovirals as additional prevention choice for people at “substantial” risk
New policies could help avert more than 21 million deaths and 28 million new infections by 2030Anyone infected with HIV should begin antiretroviral treatment as soon after diagnosis as possible, WHO announced Wednesday. With its “Treat-All” recommendation, WHO removes all limitations on eligibility for antiretroviral therapy (ART) among people living with HIV; all populations and age groups are now eligible for treatment.
The recommendations were developed as part of a comprehensive update of the “WHO consolidated guidelines on the use of antiretroviral drugs for preventing and treating HIV infection”. This early release guideline is shared ahead of the full publication, slated for release later this year, because of their potential for public health impact.
