Whether you are looking for information and resources for yourself, or for someone that you love - you have come to the right place! People diagnosed with HIV can live a long and healthy life with proper care and treatment. It is important to work with a doctor to stay healthy, for yourself and others. If you need help finding a doctor, health insurance, or other resources, assistance is available.
It is important for your health that you work with a doctor to treat your HIV as soon as possible. Your doctor will probably put you on medicines used to treat HIV called antiretrovirals, or ARVs. These medicines keep you healthy by working to lower the amount of HIV in your body. Often times the amount of HIV in your body can be lowered to the point that it cannot be measured by standard lab tests. This is called undetectable, or being virally suppressed. In addition to keeping you healthy, being virally suppressed prevents the spread of HIV to other people. This is called U=U or Undetectable=Untransmittable.
