ABSTRACT
The article reports on the advice issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) to administer antiretroviral therapy (ART) to people with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) earlier in the infection cycle. WHO suggests that ART be started when the levels of CD4 immune cells decreased below 200 per cubic millimetre of blood. Such approach is expected to slow the progression of HIV infection and prevent its transmission.
