Announcements
This HIV Guide is an electronic version of the Zambian National Guidelines on Management and Care for People Living with HIV/AIDS developed in Zambia by the National HIV/STI/TB Council (NAC) and numerous cooperating partners and institutions. The National Guidelines were developed with a goal of standardizing the quality of HIV care in all health-related sectors, and aim to equip health care workers with the basic information that would help them to provide high-quality care and treatment for patients with HIV.

The HIV Guide presents the Zambian National Guidelines in easily accessible electronic format, while benefits the reader with wealth of additional technical information and references on topics related to HIV/AIDS care and treatment.

Technical assistance for developing the electronic guide was provided by Jhpiego, Point of Care-Information Technology (POC-IT) Center, and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHU SOM), with funding from the U. S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The HIV Guide is also available on a CD ROM and in a version for PALM handheld devices. Contact information for inquiries: Jhpiego Zambia, 8 Ngumbo Road, Long Acres, PO Box 36873, Lusaka, Zambia, or by phone +260 (1) 256255 / 6 / 7.
