Abstract

Globally, in 2019, HIV infection was still responsible for 1.7 million new infections and for 690,000 deaths in the same year. Tailored and new antiretroviral therapy (ART) regimens, individualised follow-up and new technologies to support data-sharing between health-care professional caring for people living with HIV (PLHIV) and to deliver ART to patients are desperately needed to reach the 90-90-90-90 ambitious goals. The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus, responsible for the Coronavirus-19 (COVID-19) pandemic that spread globally in 2020, posed a huge challenge for PLHIV and HIV physicians worldwide in terms of continuum of care. In this paper we encourage "up-to-date patient-centred HIV medicine" and we give nine ideas to improve HIV management in clinical practice during the COVID-19 pandemic.
