Rapid Initiation of ART (RIA) refers to starting antiretroviral treatment at the time a person is diagnosis with HIV. Access to RIA is an important intervention, consistent with the concept of universal ART and necessary to our efforts to end the HIV epidemic. We know that a person with a sustained undetectable HIV viral load is healthier and cannot transmit HIV. Offering treatment to persons newly diagnosed with HIV provides a way for an individual to take swifter steps to improve their health, protect their partners, and may help minimize HIV-related stigma.
