WHO releases critical guidelines on when to start ART and PrEP

On September 30, World Health Organization (WHO), in response to a call to action by civil society has released ‘Early Release’ guidelines on when to start antiretroviral therapy and pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV. The guideline was released in advance of WHO’s forthcoming comprehensive update of its consolidated ARV guidelines due out in 2016.

The International Community of Women Living with HIV applauds the quick action of WHO to release these guidelines and to adopt the feedback and language from community consultations with ICW and other community based organizations. More information from ICW statement here.
