AIDSinfo announces an update to the "Guidance for Non-HIV-Specialized Providers Caring for HIV-Infected Residents Displaced From Disaster Areas."

The updated guidance offers health care providers recommendations on providing care to newly displaced HIV-infected adults, children, and pregnant women who have yet to secure care in the areas where they have relocated.

The guidance includes information on initial assessment of the displaced HIV-infected patient and on general strategies for medication management of the patient, including specific guidance on antiretroviral therapy, care for HIV-infected pregnant women, on prophylaxis for opportunistic infections (OIs), and on vaccinations in the setting of HIV infection.

More information regarding antiretroviral management in HIV-infected adult, pediatric, and pregnant patients as well as recommendations for prophylaxis and treatment of specific OIs can be found on the AIDSinfo Guidelines section.
