Abstract: In response to the need to revise the staging and surveillance definitions for HIV/AIDS the World Health Organization (WHO) organized a bi-regional meeting in Delhi, India in June 2005. The meeting proposed a revised WHO clinical staging system for HIV infection in adults and children, recommended changes in HIV/AIDS case definitions for surveillance purposes, and sought to harmonize HIV clinical staging definitions with that for HIV/AIDS surveillance. The meeting also recommended that the current HIV testing and counseling policies, strategies and HIV testing algorithms be reviewed, and that revisions be made that reflect regional ad country concerns.
