NATAP publishes a 40-page HCV/HIV coinfection handbook (last edition, Summer 2005) and other publications that use non-technical language to share detailed information on most important aspects of coinfection. See www.natap.org/2005/publications/ver5final.pdf.

Many HIV organizations and websites cover reports from these meetings, including NAM (www.aidsmap.com), HIVandHepatitis.com (www.hivandhepatitis.com), HIV i-Base (www.i-base.info), and NATAP (www.natap.org).
