HIV Resources

HIV treatment has evolved rapidly over the past 30 years since the discovery of HIV. Since the development of zidovudine (AZT) in 1986, a large number of antiretroviral (ARV) classes have been developed, all of which aim to interrupt the HIV replication cycle at different stages. Taken in combinations of three of more medicines, treatment with ARVs can be complex, especially in instances where co-morbidities impact on treatment choice. Being confident with providing HIV ARVs for treatment will lead to a better patient experience, with these resources designed to aid in supporting the delivery of high-quality HIV treatment services within the pharmacy setting.
