Why join?

The latest WHO HIV guideline makes available two key recommendations that were developed during the revision process in 2015. First, antiretroviral therapy (ART) should be initiated in everyone living with HIV at any CD4 cell count. Second, the use of daily oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is recommended as a prevention choice for people at substantial risk of HIV infection as part of combination prevention approaches.

The next National Conference of AIDS Society of India (ASI) is taking place in Mumbai (30th October-1st November 2015). Few ASI leaders have been involved with very early stages when HIV got diagnosed in India. This conference, ASICON 2015, presents a range of sessions on a range of issues around ending AIDS pandemic.
