WASHINGTON, DC (Thursday, May 1, 2014) – The International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC) announced today the launch of myHIVclinic.org – en français. The web portal is a multi-language educational tool that supports busy clinicians throughout the world in managing HIV comorbidities and promoting healthy aging with HIV. Click here to access the French-language version of myHIVclinic.org.
myHIVclinic.org offers information on various clinical and psychosocial topics, including cognitive impairment, cardiovascular disease, coronary artery disease, dyslipidemia, hypertension, thromboembolic disease, thyroid disease, diabetes, hypogonadism, osteoporosis, renal impairment, hepatitis, tuberculosis, and age-related fragility. New topics are added on a periodic basis, with updates transmitted to individuals who register to learn when new content is available.
“Over the past year, tens of thousands of English- and Spanish-speaking HIV clinicians around the world have visited myHIVclinic.org for concise information about the clinical management of non-communicable diseases and healthy aging with HIV,” said Benjamin Young, MD, PhD, IAPAC’s Vice President/CMO. “We hope that the launch of a French-language version of the web portal will similarly provide benefit to health care providers in Francophone countries.”
In December 2012, IAPAC acquired the “myHIVclinic” domain from United Kingdom-based ViiV Healthcare, which awarded IAPAC a two-year educational grant to support the web portal’s re-launch as a fully independent, global source of education, information, and support for all categories of clinicians and lay providers of HIV care. The web portal formerly operated by ViiV Healthcare as myHIVclinic.com was disabled upon the launch of myHIVclinic.org.
Check back soon to see new content on myHIVclinic.org, including topics such as engagement in care and antiretroviral adherence.
