Highlights:

On December 11, 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released "Recommendations for HIV Prevention with Adults and Adolescents with HIV in the United States, 2014." This resource compiles longstanding and new federal recommendations about biomedical, behavioral, and structural interventions that can help reduce the risk of HIV transmission from persons with HIV by reducing their infectiousness and their risk of exposing others to HIV. It presents a summary of recent scientific evidence, programmatic experience, and expert opinion that support the recommendations. The report is accompanied by three companion summaries, each of which lists the recommendations for one of the guideline’s three audiences:

  • Summary for Clinical Providers
  • Summary for Nonclinical Providers
  • Summary for Health Departments and HIV Planning Groups

Who developed this 2014 guideline?

The 2014 guideline was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in collaboration with the following governmental and nongovernmental organizations: Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) National Institutes of Health American Academy of HIV Medicine Association of Nurses in AIDS Care International Association of Providers of AIDS Care National Minority AIDS Council Urban Coalition for HIV/AIDS Prevention Services.

A workgroup comprising more than 80 experts in HIV prevention and care from CDC and HRSA developed the guideline after examining the latest evidence-based federal guidance, scientific research, and program experience published through July 2014. The workgroup also considered expert opinions and input from more than 60 stakeholders from the collaborating organizations and American communities affected by HIV. These stakeholders included people with HIV, HIV medical care providers, nonclinical HIV prevention providers, staff of health departments and HIV planning groups, and experts in HIV policy and law.
