People with HIV are living long and fulfilled lives but what is the future of HIV care?
The treatment and management of HIV has a long history, not without its turbulence. In the early years of the HIV and AIDS epidemic, an HIV diagnosis was almost always met with fear and terror, and the belief that it was a death sentence. For many people it was.
