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.
