Recommendations for HIV Prevention with Adults and Adolescents with HIV

	The Recommendations for HIV Prevention with Adults and Adolescents with HIV in the United States, 2014 (published December 11, 2014) updates and expands the 2003 guideline, Incorporating HIV prevention into the medical care of persons living with HIV . This guideline is a compilation of longstanding and new federal recommendations on biomedical, behavioral, and structural prevention interventions that can help reduce the risk of HIV transmission from persons with HIV – thus advancing the goals of the 2010 National HIV/AIDS Strategy (NHAS). The guideline does not provide comprehensive guidance on all prevention and care services for persons with HIV.

The guideline is accompanied by three companion summaries, one for each of the guideline’s three primary audiences:

  • Summary for Clinical Providers – for persons who provide individual level HIV prevention and care services in healthcare settings such as clinics and hospitals.
  • Summary for Nonclinical Providers – for persons who provide individual level HIV prevention and care services in non-healthcare settings, such as shelters, churches, and other community-based organizations.
  • Summary for Health Departments and HIV Planning Groups – for health department and HIV planning group staff who provide population-level HIV prevention and care services, such as HIV surveillance and community HIV education.

Implementation Resources

A comprehensive library of online resources including tools, webinars, trainings, factsheets, and recent publications on related topics. More

The guideline may also interest persons with HIV; partners of persons with HIV; specialists in HIV planning, service delivery, policy, and legislation; and managers of medical assistance programs, health insurance plans, and health systems that serve persons with HIV.

The 2014 guideline and its companion summaries have been amended in December 2016 to fix errata, outdated or dysfunctional URLs, and missing references or footnotes (the above links to these documents will take the reader to the amended versions). The recommendations and other content have not been updated.
