The introduction of highly potent antiretroviral agents has transformed HIV from a disease with a once dismal prognosis to a manageable chronic medical condition. The primary care provider as well as the HIV care provider must focus on aspects of preventive medicine that improve the quality of life and life expectancy of the HIV-infected person. Accurate record-keeping is essential, and examples of HIV primary care flow sheets are presented in this chapter. In addition, tuberculosis screening indications and methods are reviewed. Regular preventative dental and gynecological care should be given. Reviewing the treatment of traditional cardiovascular risk factors with patients will be helpful in educating them and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
