Author information

Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA.

Integration of opioid substitution treatment into the HIV clinic setting can make such treatment easier and improve retention in treatment. This article summarizes a presentation by R. Douglas Bruce, MD, MA, MS, at the IAS-USA continuing education program held in Chicago, Illinois, in May 2018.
