What is HIV treatment?

HIV treatment involves taking medicine that reduces the amount of HIV in your body.

  • HIV medicine is called antiretroviral therapy (ART).
  • There is no effective cure for HIV.  However, with proper medical care, you can control HIV.
  • Most people can get the virus under control within six months.
  • Taking HIV medicine does not prevent transmission of other sexually transmitted diseases.

When should I start treatment?  Start Treatment As Soon As Possible After Diagnosis

What if I delay treatment?

  • HIV will continue to harm your immune system.
  • This will put you at higher risk for developing AIDS.
  • This will put you at higher risk for transmitting HIV to your sexual and injection partners.
