An estimated 1 million people in the United States are presently
infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Each of these
individuals should be under the care of a physician. Moreover, there is
general consensus that early intervention should be managed in the
primary care setting. Primary care physicians are well suited to manage
the total treatment of persons with HIV throughout the disease process.
These guidelines provide the primary care physician with the information
to diagnose HIV infection, determine disease stage, and monitor and
treat patients during early stages of infection. The guidelines also
provide referral to sources of additional information and HIV training.
