BHIVA guidelines for the management of HIV-2 (2021)

Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

The British HIV Association (BHIVA) has produced new guidelines for best clinical practice in the treatment and management of HIV-2 infection.

The guidelines are similar to the approach to treatment HIV-1, although diagnosis, monitoring and management of HIV-2 remain challenging. Treatment is also more limited as some HIV drugs are only active against HIV-1.

With no published randomised controlled trials of ART for HIV-2,most evidence is based on cohort studies and observational data.

This document updates the previous edition from 2010.
