"Qualifications for Physicians Who Manage the Longitudinal HIV Treatment of Patients with HIV"

There is ample evidence in the research literature that care by experienced HIV providers translates into improved clinical outcomes and that HIV medicine does not fall under the purview of any one medical specialty. We recommend that credentialing processes to identify HIV-qualified physicians be based on a combination of patient experience and the demonstration of ongoing education and training in HIV care, especially in the area of antiretroviral therapy.

update in progress

"Guidelines for the Management of Chronic Kidney Disease in HIV-Infected Patients: Recommendations of the HIV Medicine Association of the Infectious Diseases Society of America"

Several lines of evidence point to kidney disease as an important complication of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Kidney function is abnormal in up to 30% of HIV–infected patients, AIDS-related kidney disease has become a relatively common cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring dialysis, and kidney disease may be associated with progression to AIDS and death. Because HIV caregivers commonly manage all aspects of treatment for their patients, these clinicians are in the unique and important position to identify those patients at risk for renal disease and implement potentially preventative and therapeutic strategies.

Incorporating HIV Prevention into Care

Share this Guideline

Published: MMWR ; 2003 ; 52 : RR -12
endorsed

"Incorporating HIV Prevention into the Medical Care of Persons Living with HIV" (Endorsed by IDSA)

Reducing transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the United States requires new strategies, including emphasis on prevention of transmission by HIV-infected persons. Through ongoing attention to prevention, risky sexual and needle sharing behaviors among persons with HIV infection can be reduced and transmission of HIV infection prevented. Medical care providers can substantially affect HIV transmission by screening their HIV-infected patients for risk behaviors; communicating prevention messages; discussing sexual and drug-use behavior; positively reinforcing changes to safer behavior; referring patients for services such as substance abuse treatment; facilitating partner notification, counseling, and testing; and identifying and treating other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
