Welcome to HIV in DV

This educational resource was developed with funding from the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV) to help dermatovenereologists, and other clinicians managing skin conditions or sexually transmitted infections (STIs), to diagnose HIV.

Being able to diagnose HIV is important, as one in every four people with HIV in the European region does not know they have the infection and most of those will eventually present with skin conditions.

“Diagnosing HIV infection in dermatology and venereology can save lives and prevent the further transmission of the virus. All clinicians in the specialty should be alert to the possibility of HIV infection in their patients. This valuable resource provides simple information and guidance on how to identify and test for HIV.”

– Professor Henry de Vries, Chair, Sexually Transmitted Infections Task Force, EADV
