ART Initiation at <350 - Call on WHO and UNAIDS to Save Lives
Please join in the call to the leadership of WHO and UNAIDS to take immediate, evidence-based action to update the official guidelines for anti-retroviral treatment initiation to <350 CD4.
We applaud the Ugandan national leadership for recently taking the courageous action to change their national treatment protocol to allow for initiation at <350 CD4. This is the type of proactive leadership that is needed to save lives now by the agencies that set the roadmap for HIV/AIDS treatment provision around the world. If Uganda can do it, so can WHO and UNAIDS and we are calling on them to do it now.
Please join the effort to bring immediate access to treatment to people who are sitting on waiting lists until they become 'medically eligible' for lifesaving antiretroviral treatment.
Join the effort and sign on today!
