Briefing paper

Rapid initiation: models for the immediate uptake of HIV treatment - evidence brief

HIV infections Medicine New South Wales

ACON and Positive Life NSW have produced this evidence brief to assist HIV response partners when providing care and support to people newly diagnosed with HIV. The brief reviews current literature, implementation studies and service models and makes suggestions to ensure the best tools and processes are available to encourage immediate uptake of HIV treatment.

This brief follows on from policy and epidemiological developments and supports a shift from early treatment (within six months of diagnosis) to immediate treatment (as soon as possible following diagnosis).
