BHIVA Standards of Care for People Living with HIV

4. Complex HIV care

4c. Supporting people with higher levels of need

There is evidence that people living with HIV are more likely than the general population to have multiple long-term conditions, to have poorer mental health, poorer sexual health and to have problems with alcohol and substance use. These issues can lead to an individual having a collection of diagnoses that might be seen as a marker of complexity or increased need.
