Summary

This manual was designed in 2004 to provide practical answers for the common questions that arise in the care of patients with HIV infection. It addresses the appropriate use of antiretroviral drugs, treatment of opportunistic infections, symptom management, treatment of concurrent medical conditions, patient evaluation, adherence, mental health, substance abuse, overall clinic management, and other factors that lead to improved patient outcomes. Recommendations for care and treatment change rapidly so users are encouraged to consult other sources for up-to-date information, especially manufacturers? package inserts and national ARV treatment guidelines.
