Illegal HIV test kits imported from China for sale online could give an incorrect diagnosis, a Government health watchdog warned today
Waterstone’s historic Gower Street branch in central London is to become the first retailer to display the iconic UK AIDS quilt as part of its support for World AIDS Day 2011
Deborah Jack, Chief Executive of NAT (National AIDS Trust), comments:
The University of Liverpool has launched an iPhone application - HIV iChart - that provides healthcare professionals and HIV patients with instant and easy access to information about drug interactions.
The Medical Foundation for AIDS & Sexual Health (MedFASH) has reissued its popular booklet HIV in Primary Care, revised and updated for 2011.
It covers the primary healthcare needs of people with HIV, ART
side effects and drug interactions, and HIV testing and diagnosis. The authors are practising GPs with experience of dealing with people with HIV, and HIV specialists with a background in general practice.
As HIV and primary care services change and adapt to the new NHS structures GPs will be dealing with HIV-positive patients more and more, so if your GP practice hasn’t
got a copy, why not recommend it to them?
The booklet is available to download free from the MedFASH website www.medfash.org.uk. Hard copies cost £10.
