Nurses are at the frontline of the HIV response and continue to be paramount in successful implementation of increasingly nuanced efforts towards epidemic control. Implementation of the 2015 WHO Consolidated Guidelines will require that nurses play a central role in treating more people with higher quality care. This session highlights the science behind Test and Start, the importance of nurses’ role in leadership and community responsiveness towards 90-90-90, and analyses current challenges and opportunities. It is directed towards nurses, policy makers, implementers, educators and community members.
