Introduction to ART (June 2022)

This widely used guide to HIV treatment (ART) has been updated. It is available as a printed A5 booklet that is also available online.

We update this guide every 12 to 18 months because treatment and the way it us used still changes – though not as quickly as in the past.

UK guidelines have for many years recommended that treatment should be reviewed annually and we think that information for people living with HIV should match this too.

Also, all i-Base resources (booklets, leaflets, U=U posters and cards, questions to the information service and UK-CAB membership) remain free to UK clinics. This follows the model of NHS care based on universal healthcare as a right.

i-Base guides aim to help you understand your treatment choices, to encourage you to ask questions, and to have better health and better quality of life.

Thanks as always to the advisory group that have added comments each year, making this a collaboration between treatment advocates (many of who are living with HIV) and health workers.
