NHS England approved immediate initiation of ART for all people living with HIV - foto 1

After several years of consultation, and two years after WHO guidelines recommended universal ART, NHS England will commission immediate ART for anyone who is diagnosed HIV positive, i-Base reports.

The announcement was made at the end of 2017, to take effect from 1 April 2018.

The press release notes that an estimated 3000 people are expected to directly benefit from this updated policy in the first year.

Officially, commissioning still remained at only providing ART once the CD4 count approached 350 cells/mm3.

The clinical evidence supporting the benefit of early ART was sufficiently strong in July 2015 (following the results of the START study) that WHO guidelines indicated an immediate notice to change with a rapid updates later in 2015.

The process for NHS England was considerably slower. Luckily, most doctors were able to ignore the official commissioning policy by prescribing early ART under an indication to prevent HIV transmission.
