European guidelines (EACS) – 2011 update


The launch of 2011 guidelines from the European AIDS Clinician Society (EACS), extensively revised and updated, was probably one of the scientific highlights of the conference.

The three guidelines, previously printed separately, have now been collated together in a slightly larger format. This makes the print edition now more comprehensive and also easier to use and reference.

Based on essential bulleted lists, treatment algorithms, and reference tables the guidelines are an excellent format for rapidly reviewing the current best standard of care in four key areas of HIV management:

  1. Assessment and monitoring at initial and subsequent visits
  2. ARV treatment in adults
  3. Prevention and management of non-infectious co-morbidities
  4. Clinical management and treatment of hepatitis B and C in HIV-positive patients

Although additional resources have been produced to compliment the guidelines in many important areas of HIV management, these had no yet been posted online when we went to press.

The guidelines (version 6.1) can be downloaded free as a PDF file and print copies can be order on the EACS website:
