Dealing with an HIV diagnosis can be challenging. But it's still important to process your emotions and learn about HIV and the treatment options available—then prioritize treatment.
It's never too late to start treatment. And some can start treatment right away.
Staying on treatment is the best way to live a healthier life with HIV. And it's easier to do that when you're on a treatment that works for you. Talk to a healthcare provider about which HIV treatment may be right for you.
It's important to focus on yourself first. And that includes taking care of your overall health.
The average baseball stadium holds about 50,000 people.
Enough to fill a dance floor … the size of a New York City block.
Or float down a river, 53 miles long.
It was also the number of people in the U.S. who became HIV positive, every year since 2003.
Then, something happened.
One by one, we said enough is enough.
Instead of waiting for a cure, we took action. We got tested and retested.
We talked to each other.
People living with HIV started treatment right away and stuck to it, which can prevent the spread of HIV through sex.
And it worked.
New infections went down. But we still have work to do.
So, let’s all do our part and keep fighting.
Because together we can all help stop the virus.
