WHO issues new HIV guidelines

Update: April, 27/2012 - 09:33

HCM CITY — The World Health Organisation has released guidelines for couples for HIV testing and counselling for HIV-serodiscordant couples, i.e., those in which only one partner is HIV-postive.

The guidelines also recommend that, among serodiscordant couples, anti-retroviral therapy should be provided to the person living with HIV to prevent infection of his or her partner.

"Viet Nam should consider revisions to the treatment eligibility criteria for serodiscordant couples in line with new global guidelines," said UNAIDS Viet Nam Country Director Eamonn Murphy. — VNS
