The HIV Clinical Guidelines Program is a longstanding collaborative effort between the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases. The AIDS Institute Office of the Medical Director oversees development and dissemination of the clinical practice guidelines.
Mission: To develop, disseminate, and guide implementation of state-of-the-art clinical practice guidelines to improve the quality of care provided to persons living with HIV, HCV, STIs, and related comorbidities throughout New York State.
Over the course of its thirty-year history, the program has successfully addressed the broad spectrum of HIV care throughout the State, and with the expanded mission of the AI, now also addresses guidelines topics in HCV care, STI care, drug user health, and LGBT health.
Guidelines are developed by committees of clinical practice experts from all major regions of the state and from a variety of clinical care settings to ensure that recommendations are broadly applicable.
