Guidance for Non-HIV-Specialized Providers Caring for Persons with HIV Displaced by Disasters (Such as a Hurricane): Essential Information for Managing Patients with HIV Who Are Receiving Antiretroviral Therapy   [open pdf - 398KB]

"The following information provides guidance to health care providers attending to the medical needs of adults and children with HIV who have been displaced from disaster areas and who have not yet secured HIV care in the areas where they have relocated. If possible, management of antiretroviral therapy (ART) should be done with the assistance of clinicians with experience in HIV care. Medical consultation may also be available at specific local or regional HIV clinics. After the initial assessment of a patient's immediate medical needs, the patient should be referred to the care of an HIV clinician in the area if at all possible."
