Get treated

HIV Positive?

A positive diagnosis means 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 be closely following a treatment regiment (antiretroviral medications) and checking in with a doctor. The currently available medications are safe and effective. They help keep people healthy and also help prevent a person from spreading HIV to others.
