Times of India Examines HIV-H1N1 Co-Infection

September 1, 2009

India's National AIDS Control Organization recently issued an advisory to its 217 antiretroviral treatment [ART] centers to report cases of HIV-H1N1 co-infection, the Times of India reports. "Early data from countries suggest that people co-infected with H1N1 and HIV are not at increased risk of severe or fatal illness, provided these patients are receiving ART," the newspaper writes. However, the WHO has cautioned that patients with underlying conditions, such as HIV/AIDS, are at high-risk for the complications from H1N1 and should be among those first in line to receive treatment for or protection from H1N1 (Sinha, 8/31).
