Updated WHO HIV Service Delivery Guidelines

Updated WHO HIV Service Delivery Guidelines


Published on 12 May 2021

The World Health Organization recently published the latest version of the "Updated recommendations on service delivery for the treatment and care of people living with HIV". Dahdaleh Institute Faculty Member Dr. Amrita Daftary served as one of the evidence reviewers for this version of the guidelines.

These guidelines provide new and updated recommendations and good practice statements in the following areas: starting ART, including initiating treatment outside the clinic and support for same-day ART start; frequency of clinical visits and ART refills; measuring adherence; tracing and re-engagement in care for all populations; psychosocial support for adolescents living with HIV; task sharing for diagnostic services; and service integration.

This guideline seeks to provide support to Member States, programme managers, health workers and other stakeholders seeking to achieve national and international goals to end the HIV epidemic as a public health threat by 2030.
