This week we are excited to begin the relaunch of the HIV Provider Directory, a searchable database that will be available to the public from the HIVMA website. The directory is maintained as a public service and includes listings from HIVMA members who opt-in and indicate they are accepting new patients. If you are accepting new patients, please join the directory here.

Pain has always been an important part of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease and its experience for patients. In this guideline, we review the types of chronic pain commonly seen among persons living with HIV (PLWH) and review the limited evidence base for treatment of chronic noncancer pain in this population. We also review the management of chronic pain in special populations of PLWH, including persons with substance use and mental health disorders. Finally, a general review of possible pharmacokinetic interactions is included to assist the HIV clinician in the treatment of chronic pain in this population.
