The 14h Annual Positively Aware HIV Drug Guide, widely recognized throughout the country as the “must-have” tool for HIV service providers and consumers alike, is now available.
With 28 FDA-approved HIV therapies to choose from, finding the most effective regimen is more important than ever. The Positively Aware HIV Drug Guide provides vital information to individuals living with HIV as well as their caregivers on how best to manage their treatment.
Inside, readers will find a page devoted exclusively to each medication, along with a special color pull-out drug chart. This year’s HIV Drug Chart is sponsored by Walgreens, and allows users to easily and quickly pinpoint dosing information as well as food and liquid requirements for each drug. Also included in the guide are viewpoints on each drug from a well-respected physician and activist. Readers will also find tips on how to use each medication, plus detailed information on side effects, drug interactions, HIV drugs in the pipeline, and more.
This year’s HIV Drug Guide also contains an updated and expanded article outlining the various drug co-pay and patient assistance programs being offered by many pharmaceutical companies. “In our ongoing economic crisis and continued high rates of unemployment, these programs offer much-needed assistance to people who may or may not have health insurance, but are being adversely affected by rising co-pays and HIV medication costs,” says Positively Aware Editor Jeff Berry. The magazine is published bi-monthly by Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) in Chicago.
