Summary
HIV/AIDS affects 1.1 million people in the United States, with about 40,000 new cases of HIV each year. Currently, young men who have sex with men (MSM) account for 67% of new HIV infections. Universal screening is recommended but is not properly implemented. Many people with HIV remain unaware of their infection and, unfortunately, they are responsible for nearly half of all new cases. Although there is not yet a vaccine, HIV can be prevented with the use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP). When taken correctly, PrEP is more than 90% effective in preventing HIV transmission, so it important to identify individuals at risk of HIV infection. For people who are infected with HIV, current antiretroviral treatments are highly effective. This webcast will provide an overview of how to identify people who should be considered for PrEP, when to initiate treatment in those who are infected with the virus, and when to consider switching treatment regimens.

This webcast was recorded live at the Clinical Updates for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants 2018 live symposium and is being used with the permission of the presenters
