This new book is the first to address the myriad of clinical difficulties faced by health practitioners worldwide in managing HIV/AIDS. Fact sheets about HIV/AIDS treatment information, the prevention of mother-to-child transmission, and HIV treatment side effects.

All the fact sheets are written specifically for patients in easy to read language. The diagnosis and treatment of HIV and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) have become more and more complicated as the understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease has grown. It is now nearly impossible even for experienced scientists and clinicians to remain up-to-date.

These 13 treatment and care protocols are the cornerstone of the strategic actions that WHO has taken on as part of its contribution to universal access to HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support services as agreed on by the mem-ber states of the United Size: 6MB. HIV is the virus that causes HIV infection.

AIDS is the most advanced stage of HIV infection. HIV is spread through contact with the blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, or breast milk of a person with HIV. In the United States, HIV is spread mainly by having anal or vaginal sex or sharing injection drug equipment.

HIV is a virus that damages the immune system. HIV is a lifelong condition, and without treatment, a person with HIV can develop AIDS, which makes the immune system too weak to Author: Ann Pietrangelo.

HIV is a type of virus called a retrovirus, and the combination of drugs used to treat it is called antiretroviral therapy (ART). ART is recommended for all people living with HIV, regardless of how long they’ve had the virus or how healthy they are.

Enormous advances in HIV/AIDS treatment regimens have fundamentally altered the natural history of the disease and sharply reduced HIV-related morbidity and mortality in countries where such treatments are accessible.

The advent of anti-retroviral drugs in the late s began a revolution in the management of HIV, which can be seen as analogous to the use of penicillin for treating bacterial.
