BHIVA produces a range of publications which reflect the association’s main objectives of promoting both good clinical practice and research in the treatment of HIV infection and HIV related illness as well as advancing medical education through the dissemination of research findings.

The association also acts as a national advisory body to other professions and organisations including government on all aspects of HIV care. In achieving its objective BHIVA publishes a range of papers including clinical guidelines, reports of audit findings, clinical standards documents, the medical research journal HIV Medicine and policy and advisory papers.

Clinical Guidelines
Since the 1990s, BHIVA has been producing clinical guidelines for the management of HIV infection, which, while primarily intended for the use of UK physicians, have international influence. The guidelines encompass not only treatment with antiretroviral therapy but also specific guidelines on adherence, the management of TB and hepatitis B, and C co-infected individuals, transplantation, immunisation, malignancy, opportunistic infections, reproductive and sexual health, and pregnancy.
