CROI 2019 Seattle: Praphan Phanuphak

Praphan Phanuphak, of The Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre, speaks to us at the 2019 Retrovirus Conference in Seattle. He tells us what they have been doing in Thailand in terms of accelerating the HIV testing, using lay people, accelerating HIV treatment using same-day ART initiation, as well as PrEP being dispensed by lay people. He believes this kind of rapid diagnosis treatment and prevention should be applied to all countries in the world, since this can end HIV much faster.
