US guidelines on HIV-related OIs online for comment

Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

On 1 August 2022, the US guidelines on HIV-related opportunistic infections (OIs) were updated to include information about monkeypox. [1]

Rather than including detailed information, the guidelines defer to information from the US CDC about management of monkeypox in p3eople living with HIV. [2]

Earlier this year, the guidelines also updated sections on C. difficile and tuberculosis. [2]

The guidelines panel also ask for feedback by August 19, 2022.
