Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

On 15 May 2020, BHIVA published an online factsheet to help HIV positive people who need to go to hospital because of COVID-19. [1]

The leaflet covers HIV disclosure in hospital, continuing to take ART, access to intensive care if needed and where to get more information.

i-Base have adapted the leaflet as an i-Base Q&A web page, This also includes information about treatment for COVID-19. [2]
