Being proactive about your health puts you in control of your HIV.

Studies show that people who start treatment soon after their HIV diagnosis have better health outcomes. Today, you can begin treatment as soon as you receive a diagnosis of HIV.  It is recommended that people who are diagnosed with HIV, start treatment as soon as is practical and when you feel comfortable.

Your CD4 count and viral load will provide clinical markers to guide you and your doctor. If you're unhappy with advice you receive, seek a second opinion.
