General Practitioners and HIV

 

 

 

This resource is designed to provide an introduction to HIV management in the primary care setting. General Practitioners (GPs) play a vital role in the prevention of transmission of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), and the provision of care to people living with HIV (PLHIV), specifically in early diagnosis and management. Most HIV patients will then need life-long treatment with antiviral medications, which may be provided by HIV specialists or by GPs with advanced training.
