The British HIV Association (BHIVA) in collaboration with other key stakeholders from around the UK, has developed a set of Standards of Care for People Living with HIV. These up to date standards of care will be a vital reference tool for clinicians and other healthcare professionals in ensuring that all those living with HIV in the UK continue to have consistent access to high quality care.

The Standards of Care for People Living with HIV are a critically important resource in the emerging new framework for the commissioning of HIV services via the National Commissioning Board and also for the payment by results system of national tariffs for HIV services. They will be particularly important for local service providers and commissioners to determine the right model of care within their local networks to meet the needs of people living with HIV within their communities.

The Standards of Care for People Living with HIV were published at a launch event on Thursday 29 November at the Royal College of Physicians of London.

BHIVA were delighted to be able to welcome just under 150 delegates to this prestigious event and to be able to hold this at the Royal College of Physicians of London. We would like to thank all our participants for giving up their time to speak and, in addition, we are very grateful for the support that we have received from the M.A.C. AIDS Fund, which has assisted greatly in covering the costs incurred in producing these important standards of care.
