Antiretroviral Treatment

Antiretroviral treatment that results in full viral load suppression is clinically beneficial (making it possible to manage HIV as a chronic condition) and significantly reduces the risk of HIV transmission. Federal expert panels now recommend early treatment for anyone living with HIV, and though there are relatively simple regimens available, patients must adhere to them for a lifetime. Monitoring and managing treatment success is a complex task for clinicians. Finally, despite the many advances in recent years, there is still much that is not understood about the long term impact of HIV and HIV medications.
