These pages are for anyone living with HIV. You may want to read all the information at once or take your time – dipping in and out over days or even weeks. You may also wish to send these pages to a relative or friend to read, so they have more information to be able to support you.
Right now, the three things you need to know first are:
- Most people living with HIV with access to treatment have long and healthy lives
- Taking antiretroviral medication can reduce your viral load to undetectable levels, which means there is no risk of sexually transmitting the virus.
- You are not alone and you can be connected to people who will make sure you’ve got the resources, information and support you need to continue to live a healthy life.
