A number of lengthy and comprehensive articles and guidelines exist with regard to the treatment and prevention of opportunistic infections, but this guideline is designed to be easy and simple for a practitioner to use. It is presented in a simplified format. The guideline is supported by evidence-based studies and adapted to be appropriate to the local situation. It should be noted that only the drugs that are licensed in South Africa have been recommended and in addition, at all times, the most cost-effective regiments have been endorsed. Alternative regiments have been listed where appropriate, but these are not exhaustive. A practitioner dealing with a more complex problem may find it necessary to consult with a colleague or refer to more comprehensive material.
