Article: Antiretroviral Treatment of Adult HIV Infection: 2012 Recommendations of the International Antiviral Society–USA Panel

  
Summary Points:

  • Antiretroviral treatment is recommended and should be offered to all persons with HIV, regardless of CD4 cell count.
  • Particular attention should be paid to the design of an antiretroviral regimen for persons with concurrent conditions such as viral hepatitis, opportunistic infections, and other medical diseases because of the potential for drug interactions.
  • Monitoring of entry into and retention in HIV care, adherence to antiretroviral therapy, and quality of care indicators is recommended and should be used to increase care engagement and quality.
