Target Audience

This activity is intended for infectious disease and HIV specialists engaged in the care of patients with HIV.

Program Description

Long COVID is becoming increasingly common as the pandemic continues. Patients with HIV who have had COVID-19 have a higher risk for developing long COVID, emphasizing the importance of vaccination and prevention in these patients. Though there is still insufficient knowledge about treating long COVID, there are guidelines for evaluation of long COVID and multiple existing management strategies that can help treat long COVID in patients with HIV. Drs. Onyema Ogbuagu and Michael Peluso discuss the risk of long COVID in patients with HIV, long COVID evaluation, existing management strategies, and the importance of HIV care in the face of long COVID.

Educational Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Implement optimal approaches to caring for people with HIV coinfected with another viral infection
