phoneline signpost graphic2i-Base answers questions about HIV treatment. This service is primarily for people who are HIV positive.

Our answers are based on the latest guidelines and research and presented in non-technical language.

This information is posted by treatment advocates (who answers these questions?) and is meant to be used in consultation and discussion with your doctor.

Before posting a question, try seeing whether the answer is already online in the questions by subject,  recent questions or FAQs pages.

THE Q&A SERVICE DOES NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT HIV TESTING OR HIV TRANSMISSION. See: Why doesn’t i-Base answer questions on HIV testing and transmission?
