"My colleagues are some of the greatest humanitarians I've ever known."

IDSA and HIVMA are working with the National Coalition of STD Directors and Treatment Action Group to address supply and cost issues affecting the response to the growing STI epidemic. We are particularly concerned about access to Bicillin-LA, manufactured by Pfizer Inc, following a drug shortage in 2017 and the cost of the drug for providers without access to 340B.
Data showing a tripling of hepatitis C cases across America during the last decade highlight urgent and multi-faceted public health needs for expanded access to prevention, screening and treatment in addition to integrated health services that provide care for substance use disorders and associated infectious diseases.
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.
By December 10, submit a public comment to the Department of Homeland Security and use your voice to show how proposed changes would harm access to care and public health.Learn More
