Evidence-based guidelines for the management of persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
were prepared by an expert panel of the HIV Medicine Association of the Infectious Diseases Society of
America. These updated guidelines replace those published in 2004. The guidelines are intended for use by
health care providers who care for HIV-infected patients or patients who may be at risk for acquiring HIV
infection. Since 2004, new antiretroviral drugs and classes have become available, and the prognosis of persons
with HIV infection continues to improve.
