Pharmacists can play a critical role in the care of persons living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).  This activity will provide an overview of the history, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and viral targets of antiretroviral therapy (ART).  Additionally, the different classes of antiretrovirals will be discussed, including the mechanism of action, common side effects, and limitations or special considerations which are unique to specific agents.  The pharmacist’s role in adherence will be discussed, as well as the treatment of patients, including special populations (e.g., pediatric patients, elderly).
