WHO to host online workshops on updated HIV guidelines
The World Health Organisation (WHO) is to run a series of online workshops around their updated guidelines for HIV treatment and service delivery. The broadcasts will run for two days: March 17th from 14:00 to 16:30 GMT and March 18th 10:00 to 12:30 GMT. Seminars will be accompanied by translation.
In 2020 the WHO developed new clinical guidelines for service delivery in key thematic areas. In order to present and discuss these recommendations the WHO has organised this series of workshops which also gives participants the chance to pose their questions to the experts.
