There is 1 comment on Same-Day Initiation of HIV Treatment Recommended by WHO

  1. The treat all strategy has been widely accepted in Nigeria since it’s inclusion in the 2016 national guidelines. Of course there are varied programmatic limitations but one is very salient and especially amplified with the same day initiation which is retention in treatment. Our studies show that the earlier patients start lifelong therapy the less likely they are to adhere and remain on treatment due to the short processing time for acceptance of disease and preparation for therapy.
    It may be worthwhile looking for ways to ameliorate this while we push for a same day initiation.
