Federal guidelines for treatment, prevention and care of HIV disease, opportunistic infections, and common co-infections.
Liver disease that is tied to Hepatitis C (HCV) infection is a leading cause of death among HIV-infected individuals. Ryan White-funded clinics are taking on a greater role in not only managing HCV disease but also providing HCV treatments, which was once considered too toxic and risky but is less so given new HCV drug regimens. Hepatitis B is also a major challenge for many people with HIV.
