New HIV treatment guide for digital ageEver since the discovery of the HIV virus in the early 1980s, scientific advances have progressed at such a remarkable pace that it is hard to catch up with the latest developments. The Department of Health Centre for Health Protection joined the Stanley Ho Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases of the Chinese University of Hong Kong to produce an updated HIV Manual, which is officially released on 27 September 2013.

One unique feature of the new Manual is its availability in digital format. HIV Manual 3rd edition is housed at its designated internet website. For the convenience of mobile phone users, it can be downloaded as an Android App from Google Play or iPhone App from iTunes. The print version is in limited supply from Centre for Health Protection.
