If your test results indicate you are HIV-positive, it is important that you start treatment immediately.
Treatment consists of medicines called antiretroviral therapy (A.R.T.). If medication is taken as prescribed, the amount of HIV in your system will diminish and help allow you to live a healthy long life.
Although there is currently no cure for HIV, with the right treatment and support, people with HIV can live long and healthy lives. To do this, it is especially important to take treatment correctly and deal with any possible side-effects.
