The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the American Academy of HIV Medicine, the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care, the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care, the National Minority AIDS Council, and the Urban Coalition for HIV/AIDS Prevention Services issued Recommendations for HIV Prevention with Adults and Adolescents with HIV in the United States, 2014. This guideline updates and expands on Recommendations for Incorporating HIV Prevention into the Medical Care of Persons Living with HIV  which was published in 2003 by CDC, HRSA, NIH, and the HIV Medicine Association of the Infectious Diseases Society of America.
 
The new guideline compiles new and longstanding federal recommendations about biomedical, behavioral, and structural interventions that can reduce the risk of HIV transmission from persons with HIV. The guideline is accompanied by three companion summaries; each contains the subset of recommendations for one of the guideline’s three audiences: clinical providers, nonclinical providers, and staff members of health departments and HIV planning groups.

The guideline and accompanying summaries are also available on the AIDSinfo guidelines home page.
