Project Inform provides information on the use of the best proven HIV treatments. These and any other treatments should only be used under the care of an experienced physician. We encourage patients and physicians to enter into collaborative relationships with shared responsibility for achieving and maintaining health. Treatment should always be accompanied by monitoring which evaluates the success or failure of treatment. Both patient and physician should be prepared to adjust strategy based on the results of the monitoring process. This model of flexible, monitored treatment used in the context of a collaborative doctor/patient relationship is the key to managing HIV as a chronic illness.

Complete information on treatments currently viewed as helpful is readily available, along with discussion papers on related topics. Just ask for the basic "treatment package." The latest information on these and other important treatment issues is available through the Project Inform Hotline.
