A positive HIV diagnosis means that you can still live a long, healthy life with proper treatment!
The earlier a person is diagnosed the better! Don’t wait to be tested for HIV.
People who are HIV positive should closely follow a treatment regiment (antiretroviral medications) and should regularly check in with a doctor.
The currently available medications to treat HIV are safe and effective. They help keep people healthy and also help prevent a person with HIV from spreading HIV to others.
