Treatment of HIV-infected adults with antiretroviral therapy (2006)


The BHIVA Treatment Guidelines for 2005 were prepared by a writing sub-committee, who jointly take responsibility for the recommendations, which are based on published data and evidence-based medicine.

The BHIVA Guidelines 2005 were updated to reflect the latest findings and were subjected to scrutiny by a lengthy consultative procedure which encouraged comments from our membership, community organisations, pharmaceutical companies.

These guidelines have now been archived. Click here to view the latest version.
