Being HIV positive no longer means instant death. This book includes tried-and-true advice on how you or a loved one may deal with receiving an HIV diagnosis, as well as information on pertinent therapies and commonly asked concerns.
There is no reason why people with HIV cannot live as normally as possible provided they manage their illness and medications appropriately.

A well-known, chronic medical illness, HIV. When a person contracts HIV and refuses treatment, the virus develops and overpowers the immune system, which results in an AIDS diagnosis.

However, there is some good news. Antiretroviral treatment, or ART, stops HIV from reproducing and weakening the immune system when administered properly and regularly. This drug keeps the body healthy, aids in the defense against potentially fatal infections, and prevents the progression of HIV into AIDS. Research has also demonstrated that ART can aid in limiting the spread of HIV to others.
