The BC HIV/AIDS Therapeutic Guidelines are part of the BC-CfE’s ongoing commitment to bringing forward the most current information regarding the treatment of HIV/AIDS.
The Therapeutic Guidelines are available for download. Please select from the list of Guidelines on the left.
The guidelines reflect a consensus of the BC-CfE’s Therapeutic Guidelines Committee, which is made up of physicians, pharmacists, virologists, health service researchers, and economists. This information represents the committee’s interpretation of current best practices in the treatment of HIV/AIDS and related conditions. The guidelines are reviewed quarterly and revisions are mailed to physicians throughout the province.
The Therapeutic Guidelines form the basis for HIV treatment strategies, the results of which are constantly monitored through assessment of clinical and virological outcomes for treated patients. These outcome studies are subsequently used to generate further revisions. As the BC-CfE expands access to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) in British Columbia, the committee will be in a unique position to monitor and react to changes in the HIV disease burden.
