Currently Treating HIV

Since there's currently no cure for HIV, many of the 1.1 million Americans infected with the disease may assume that getting treated is unnecessary, but that's simply not the case. Being proactive and treating HIV early is one of the best ways to avoid future complications. 

But treatment involves more than just taking the prescribed drugs and medications. Your treatment regimen also includes managing the disease and continuing to live a healthy, happy, and productive life. The rise of social media along with an increased level of awareness about the disease now makes it easier than ever to connect with other HIV patients undergoing treatment just like you.
