Highlights of the Symposium on Managing Today’s Complex HIV Patient

Despite improved antiretroviral regimens in HIV treatment, virological failure and emergence of drug resistance is still a problem worldwide. This includes both patients recently infected as well as those veterans of older regimens: in the USA, the overall viral suppression among PLWHIV is 55% and adherence is often sub optimal.

Ultimately, this leads to an increasing number of HIV patients with limited treatment options who require greater knowledge and understanding to manage in terms of adherence, resistance, aging, comorbidities and polypharmacy they are complex HIV patients. This highlights program aims to help healthcare professionals identify and manage the complex HIV patient, as well as providing education on new antiretroviral drugs for optimizing treatment of complex HIV patients.
