New Guidelines Issued for General Practitioners Caring for Displaced HIV-Infected Patients

September 23, 2005

Some HIV-infected patients may have interrupted their antiretroviral therapy and other medications due to the recent hurricane disasters. The following link provides some guidance to the general practitioners attending to the medical needs of displaced HIV-infected adult or pediatric patients who have not yet secured HIV care in the local area.

Management of antiretroviral therapy is complex and should best be done with the assistance of specialized clinicians.
