The 2021 Bartlettt HIV guide is dedicated to Late John G. Bartlett M.D., an internationally recognized pioneer in the study and treatment of HIV/AIDS patients who co-founded our country's second HIV/AIDS clinic at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Bartlett was a brilliant researcher in HIV, a caring clinician, and a charismatic leader in the field of Infectious Diseases.
Drs. Pham and Shah each have 15-20 years of experience in treating patients with HIV infection and have also served on many HIV
guideline panels, including U.S. government panels on opportunistic infections, and WHO TB diagnostic guidelines. This HIV Pocket Guide summarizes this information with an attempt to achieve brevity, clarity and accuracy in guiding decisions relevant to the management of adult patients with HIV infection. It includes detailed information on the treatment of HIV and its associated conditions, including hepatitis B and C, tuberculosis, opportunistic infections, sexually transmitted diseases and other
common co-morbidities. The guide includes expanded drug-drug interactions
tables, and a table that contains pictures and characteristics of the antiretroviral agents available
in the US. HIV care recommendations change frequently; users should be aware that this guide
contains information and recommendations that were up-to-date as of April 2021.
