African experts to meet over HIV treatment in Namibia

WINDHOEK (Xinhua) -- More than 120 experts from 11 African countries are expected to convene here a four-day HIV Viral Load Testing workshop.

Viral load testing is recommended by the World Health Organization for monitoring treatment in patients who are on antiretroviral therapy (ART).

The workshop scheduled for September 13 will be the first of its kind to be held in Namibia.

Clinical and laboratory experts in the HIV field will discuss and share strategies and country experiences in improving efficiency for increased HIV Viral load testing and uptake of results for patient management.

Namibia is one of the top three African countries in provision of viral load testing to people living with HIV who need the test.

Monitoring HIV treatment through viral load testing is important to detect treatment failure which can cause HIV patients to get sicker or even die from HIV.
