Clinical Guidelines for the Treatment and Prevention of Opportunistic Infections in HIV-infected Koreans

Abstract

Clinical guidelines for treatment and prevention of opportunistic infections in HIV-infected patients have been developed in other countries. However, due to different epidemiological and clinical situations in Korea, the implementation of such guidelines may be not assured. Therefore, the Committee for Clinical Guidelines for the Treatment and Prevention of Opportunistic Infections in HIV-infection Koreans of The Korean Society for AIDS was founded in 2011 for development of optimal guidelines that can be directly applied in Korea. These guidelines aim to provide comprehensive information regarding treatment and prevention of opportunistic infections in Korea. The recommendations contain important information for physicians working with HIV/AIDS in actual clinical fields. Regular revision of the guidelines will be performed according to changes in clinical situations for opportunistic infections in HIV-infected Koreans.
