New HIV Care Guidelines Now that antivirals have succeeded in giving a normal life span to many people with HIV, IDSA has urged clinicians to focus their energies outside of the virus and back to primary care.

“In many HIV practices now, 80% of patients with HIV infection have the virus under control. This means that primary care physicians need a better grasp of the impact HIV care has on routine health care. Doctors need to tell their HIV-infected patients, Your HIV disease is controlled, and we need to think about the rest of you.”—Judith A. Aberg, MD, lead author of the new guidelines.
