New BHIVA guidelines: HIV positive adults and HIV & pregnancy (April 2012)
8 May 2012. Related: News.
In April 2012, the British HIV Association (BHIVA) published two new clinical guidelines:
- Treatment of HIV-1 positive adults with antiretroviral therapy (2012)
- Management of HIV infection in pregnant women (2012)
The new adult treatment guidelines is the first significant revision for four years and sets out recommendations on the treatment that HIV doctors provide for their patients, and highlight the role of treatment as prevention.
The new guidelines for the treatment of pregnant women living with HIV will help enable more women to have the same experience in childbirth as women who are HIV negative.
BHIVA will produce implementation and audit tools to be used alongside these guidelines.
