Abstract

Antiretroviral treatment (ART) of HIV infection has been considered a potential HIV prevention method since the early 1990s [1,2]. The 2009 modeling study by Granich et al. [3], which predicted that universal HIV testing of sexually active adults and immediate initiation of all HIVinfected individuals on ART could substantially reduce HIV incidence, has put treatment-as-prevention firmly on the HIV prevention agenda [4,5]. Trials of treatmentas-prevention will begin this year in New York and Washington, DC, and several research institutions are currently requesting funding to develop and conduct such trials in hyperendemic communities in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) [6].​
