WHO-transistion to ARV report 2017 coverTransition to new antiretroviral drugs in HIV programmes: clinical and programmatic considerations (WHO)

WHO has recommended adopting drug regimens with high potency, lower toxicity, high genetic barriers to resistance, usefulness across different populations and lower cost. The use of optimised drug regimens can improve the durability of the treatment and quality of care of people living with HIV.

Adopting optimised antiretroviral (ARV) drug regimens can significantly affect the speed at which the  90-90-90 targets are achieved, enhancing access to treatment and improving treatment outcomes with impact on treatment adherence, viral suppression and the quality of life of people living with HIV, reducing pressures on health systems and the risk of HIV transmission.
