BHIVA guidelines for HIV-associated malignancies 2014

British HIV Association guidelines for HIV-associated malignancies 2014 Introduction

The overall purpose of these guidelines is to provide guidance on best clinical practice in the treatment and management of adults with HIV infection and malignancy. The scope includes the management of diagnosed malignancies in people living with HIV but does not address screening for malignancies in this population. This is covered elsewhere in other BHIVA guidance where evidence is available to support it [1].

The guidelines are aimed at clinical professionals directly involved with, and responsible for, the care of adults with HIV infection, and at community advocates responsible for promoting the best interests and care of HIV-positive adults. They should be read in conjunction with other published BHIVA guidelines.
