HIV 2015/2016

The hivbook is a medical textbook that  follows the concept of being independent, easy to read, and freely available on the Internet. The book has first been published in 1991 and has since been updated annually. HIV 2015/2016 is the 23rd edition.


The concept of this book was developed by Bernd Sebastian Kamps: to provide readable and freely accessible medical information on HIV for use in daily practice of HIV treatment.  Even after Bernd Sebastian Kamps retired in July 2008, we decided to continue – encouraged by the fact that this textbook has been downloaded and read by ten thousands of physicians worldwide every year.

The HTML contents of this site refer to HIV 2011.

HIV 2015/2016 is now available and free to download here:

    Excellent write up. This book (print copy) should be subsidized or made available free for developing countries. Gilead, Hexal, MSD etc, thanks for this wonderful opportunity. We students in developing countries would really appreciate.

    How to get the book?
    I’m more interested on how viral load is detected, and what keeps it low or high because. I’m surprised how one can have a viral load that is 11000 and something, then a year later is detected to 6626 without taking the treatment…
