Researchers ask government to implement WHO guidelines

Researchers in Uganda are asking government to start implementing the newly released WHO guidelines in the prevention of HIV in high risk communities which researchers and WHO say reduce the cost of treating the disease in a long run.
According to Dr. Nulu Bulya and Dr. Charles Brown from infectious disease institute, new WHO prevention strategies like PrEP have been proved to be very effective preventive methods which scale down HIV cost to those who are living with the disease as the methods can allow discordant couples to have sex and not pass over the infection to a negative partner. The researchers now state that according to the research carried out in the country that attracted 1013 clients, only two people transfer the disease to the other after the use of PrEP.
With these findings which were released in February this year, now researchers and scientists recommend that government immediately implements such globally accepted and proven strategies to scale down in the number of new infections
