Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to provide practical tools to improve the competence of primary care providers and other nonspecialists as well as global specialist healthcare professionals in making evidence-based ART decisions by increasing awareness and use of HIV-ASSIST.

Learning Objectives

  • Confidently make use of the HIV-ASSIST tool based on a solid understanding of its functionality and the data that validate its effectiveness in HIV decision support
  • Integrate HIV-ASSIST into the clinical workflow when selecting antiretroviral regimens for previously untreated patient cases
  • Select evidence-based new ART regimens for patients with stable virologic suppression and those with virologic failure through appropriate use of HIV-ASSIST
