The 2013 Clinical Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of HIV/AIDS in HIV-Infected Koreans


While a variety of clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of HIV/AIDS are used extensively around the world, the implementation of such guidelines is not assured in Korea due to constraints with respect to the diagnostic tests and antiretroviral drugs currently available in the country. Consequently, the Committee for Clinical Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of HIV/AIDS of the Korean Society for AIDS was founded in 2010, and the first edition of the Korean guidelines was published a year later. However, due to the rapid discovery of new data in the field of HIV and the evolution of the clinical environment in Korea in the last few years, it has become necessary to revise the first set of guidelines. This guideline aims to provide comprehensive information regarding the diagnosis and management of HIV/AIDS in Korea. The recommendations contain important information for physicians working with HIV/AIDS in the clinical field. A brief summary of the revised guidelines and key changes to the original version of the guidelines are summarized below.
