Loads of Information
In each issue, POZ publishes a different standard of care, a guide by which people with HIV and their care providers can make personal choices about health care regimes. HIV standards of care differ by region, treatment philosophy and patient population. The guidelines published below for using viral-load tests were developed by a physicians'panel of the International AIDS Society-USA (IAS-USA), an organization that offers medical professionals educational courses and materials (largely pharmaceutically financed) on AIDS care. The introduction that follows is adapted by permission from an article in WORLD (Women Organized to Respond to Life-threatening Diseases), a monthly newsletter of the Oakland, California-based women's HIV information and advocacy group of the same name.
