SOLANO-CHINCHILLA, Antonio et al. Guidelines for antiretroviral treatment of Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection in Costa Rica. Acta méd. costarric [online]. 2012, vol.54, n.4, pp.262-268. ISSN 0001-6002.

Abstract: The following document is a guideline adapted to the national reality for the management of people living with HIV. Once a clinical assessment has been made, the antiretroviral therapy must be initiated as soon as possible in all the patients with a CD4+ count less than 350 cels/mm3. A strict follow-up by an interdisciplinary team must be guaranteed. The viral load will be the follow-up parameter. The aim is that it will be undetectable after 6 months of treatment.

Keywords : HIV; antiretroviral; CD4; viral load; virologic failure; AIDS.
