Recent WHO HIV Treatment Guidelines Could End Confusion Over When To Begin Therapy, Help End AIDS

Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting: Ending AIDS, Ending Confusion
As part of a collaborative project for Science, the PBS NewsHour, BuzzFeed, and UCTV, Jon Cohen, a reporter for Science and Pulitzer Center grantee, discusses confusion around HIV/AIDS diagnoses and antiretroviral (ARV) treatment, particularly in Zimbabwe. He notes the WHO’s recent recommendation to immediately treat people who are infected with HIV, instead of waiting for their CD4 cell counts to drop, could “usher in a level of clarity that can only fuel the ending AIDS push” (1/21).
