LEDESMA MARTIN-PINTADO, F. et al. The treatment update from the human immuno-deficiency virus (HIV) infected patients. 2002 . Medifam [online]. 2002, vol.12, n.2, pp.21-43. ISSN 1131-5768.

It has been 20 years now since HIV epidemic started. Due to the infection's social and economical impact and it's wide spread in the developed countries, a huge scientific knowledge has taken place. Nevertheless with the actual treatments, we know that is impossible to destroy the virus, though they have contributed to almost eradicate the opportunistic infections and the quality of life level has increased tremendously.  This improvements showed by combining antiretroviral therapy, drugs cost -and the most important- the negative consequences from the treatment itself, have motivated to start the medication as late as possible.  If we have to follow up the evolution of a patient without symptoms along the years and if a large number of patients in treatment, just only need periodical controls, to fit or to modify the treatment, could we then conclude that it would be possible to treat the patients in their natural environment out of hospital?
