Recognizing the need for a coordinated global effort to prevent HIVDR from undermining the attainment of global targets and to provide the most effective treatment to people living with HIV, WHO has developed the 2017 HIVDR Report , WHO Guidelines on the public health response to pretreatment HIVDR, and Global Action Plan on HIVDR, 2017-2021.
Silvia Bertagnolio leads WHO’s work on HIVDR and will make a presentation on the reports. She will be joined by Anton Ofield-Kerr, Director of Equal International, which supported the development of the Global Action Plan. The webinar will provide an opportunity to discuss HIVDR and consider feedback from the IAS conference, as well as consider inputs from Global Health Council members.
The HIV drug resistance report 2017 presents recent HIVDR data from a nationally representative survey of pretreatment and acquired HIVDR. Results are contextualized by systematic reviews of the published literature assessing HIVDR in adults and children. The report informs prevention activities and the public health response to HIVDR.
The Guidelines on the public health response to pretreatment HIV drug resistance answer the following questions:
1. At what prevalence of HIVDR amongst people starting ART should a public health intervention be triggered?
2. What is the appropriate response(s) in countries with elevated levels of non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) resistance?
The Global Action Plan on HIVDR, 2017-2021, developed in collaboration with partners and stakeholders, provides a five-year framework for action centered on five strategic objectives. The framework outlines key actions for all partners involved in the global response to HIVDR, and links to indicators to track implementation of the plan.
