Overview

To support simplification of HIV treatment, WHO recommends a limited formulary of preferred treatment options. As well as giving priority to antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) with superior efficacy and tolerability, WHO prioritizes choices based on:

  • convenience,
  • availability as fixed dose combinations (FDCs),
  • compatibility with treatment of common co- morbidities, and
  • potential to use across all populations.
