Fact Sheets: Complications (Opportunistic Infections & Malignancies, Symptoms, and Side Effects)
January 2007

Patient-oriented clinical fact sheets on HIV disease are produced by numerous agencies and organizations. HIV InSite has indexed fact sheets available in English, French, and Spanish by topic, so that providers and patients can easily find a desired monograph at an appropriate reading level. Users should compare fact sheets for a given topic and decide which is most up-to-date and best-suited to their needs, as fact sheet producers have different editorial viewpoints and update schedules.

Also see HIV InSite's other indexes of fact sheets:

Antiretrovirals and Immune-Based Therapies

Diagnostic tests and special topics
