For individuals who have tested positive for HIV, immediate initiation of antiretroviral therapy (I-ART) can help them achieve viral suppression more quickly and promote overall health. Providers at clinical settings should work towards helping HIV-positive persons initiate ART as soon as possible, either on site or through immediate linkage. Providing same day and/or rapid I-ART may also help patients to feel empowered.
