Description:This Summary for Clinical Providers contains the subset of recommendations for clinical providers from the 2014 guideline, Recommendations for HIV prevention with adults and adolescents with HIV in the United States, 2014. This Summary is intended for clinical providers who serve persons with HIV in health care facilities. These providers offer risk assessments, health education, counseling, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and other health-related services. They include physicians, registered nurses, advance practice nurses, physician assistants, dentists, mental health providers, pharmacists, health educators, case managers, social workers, and counselors. Some may be employees or contractors of health departments.
The guideline includes new and longstanding federal guidance on biomedical, behavioral, and structural interventions that can decrease HIV transmission from persons with HIV by reducing their infectiousness and their risk of exposing others to HIV. The guideline updates and expands earlier federal guidance for clinical providers in the 2003 guideline, Incorporating HIV prevention into the medical care of persons living with HIV; recommendations of CDC, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the National Institutes of Health, and the HIV Medicine Association of the Infectious Diseases Society of America .
The 2014 guideline and this Summary were developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the National Institutes of Health, the American Academy of HIV Medicine, the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care, the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care, the National Minority AIDS Council, and the Urban Coalition for HIV/AIDS Prevention Services.
