There has been a significant and dramatic change in the management of HIV infection since the introduction of potent antiretroviral therapy in 1996. There has also been a significant decrease in morbidity and mortality among persons living with HIV infection resulting from improved access to care, prophylaxis against opportunistic infections, and antiretroviral therapy. A working group of clinical scientists was chosen by the HIV Medicine Association of the Infectious Diseases Society of America to develop guidelines addressing the primary care of persons infected with HIV. The purpose of these guidelines is to assist health care providers in the primary care management of persons infected with HIV, including a description of baseline laboratory screening and adherence issues.
