Statement of Need

Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is highly effective for the treatment of HIV, and has greatly increased the lifespan and health of people infected with HIV. Unfortunately, only about 40% of the 1.2 million people in the United States who are infected with the virus are engaged in care, a staggering statistic given that 61% of all new HIV infections are due to those who were aware of their infection, but not engaged in care. While advances continue to be made in the prevention, detection, and treatment of HIV, practitioners lag behind in implementing best practices in HIV management as recommended by published treatment guidelines, as well as new information derived from clinical trials. Moreover, physicians lack an understanding of new therapies that are simplified, more tolerable, and less prone to resistance, features that may enhance retention in care and improve long-term outcomes. As such, to improve long-term outcomes for patients with HIV, an educational activity that addresses how to implement clinical advances in the HIV therapeutic landscape into practice is of urgent educational need.
