Experience has shown that health outcomes are better if treatment and care is planned in partnership with your doctor.
That’s why we’ve updated our popular Checklist guide for people with HIV.
NAPWHA produces this guide to help positive Australians make the best decisions about their health, care and treatment, and this edition includes the latest information on treating HIV. It gives you a checklist of issues to work through when seeing a doctor for the first time or when you are preparing or updating your health care plan (something that all people with HIV should have done annually, at least).
The guide lists the main tests and health checks that positive people should expect to receive as part of their comprehensive health care; as well as links to support and information services.
The checklist is designed for all people with HIV. However, there are some additional issues listed for people who have recently seroconverted or for those with more advanced HIV disease.
