Working Groups for the HHS HIV/AIDS Treatment and Prevention Guidelines

The Office of AIDS Research Advisory Council (OARAC) convenes working groups to write, review, and update the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) guidelines for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS. The OARAC working groups include members of the OARAC and representatives from the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Health Resources and Services Administration, and the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy. HIV/AIDS experts from the United States and abroad—including physicians, pharmacists, researchers, and HIV/AIDS treatment advocates—also serve on the working groups. The HHS HIV/AIDS Treatment and Prevention guidelines from the OARAC working groups are recommended for use by U.S. health care practitioners, and they inform medical providers and the public throughout the world. The documents may be accessed on the AIDSinfo website.

The OARAC working groups are—

•    Antiretroviral (ARV) Guidelines for Adults and Adolescents
•    Opportunistic Infections in HIV-Infected Adults and Adolescents
•    Antiretroviral Therapy and Medical Management of Children Living with HIV
•    Opportunistic Infections in HIV-Exposed and HIV-Infected Children
•    Treatment of Pregnant Women with HIV Infection and Prevention of Perinatal Transmission
