Rapid ART is the administration of antiretroviral therapy as early as possible after an HIV diagnosis and, ideally, at the same clinic visit as the HIV diagnosis. Rapid ART is the standard of HIV treatment. Clinic processes to adopt rapid ART include development of protocols, staff training, development of teams that can facilitate delivery of rapid ART, and client education.
