IDSA created the HIV Medicine Association (HIVMA) in fall 2000 to provide an organizational home for medical professionals engaged in HIV medicine. Through its activities, HIVMA supports clinicians in overcoming the challenges inherent in providing high quality health care to patients living with HIV disease.

HIVMA represents the diversity of medical subspecialties practicing HIV medicine -- including internal medicine, family practice, infectious diseases, oncology, and obstetrics-gynecology. As of October 2003, HIVMA has more than 2,500 members representing 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and 36 countries outside of the United States.
