If you’re living with HIV then taking treatment is really important for your health as it reduces the amount of HIV in your body and helps boost your immune system.
Once you start treatment you will need to take it for life. To ensure it works properly you need to stay engaged with a healthcare professional so they can monitor your progress, manage any side effects and change your treatment if necessary.
Treatment options are constantly improving. You no longer have to take lots of pills and the side effects are much easier to cope with or even non-existent.
