LIVING WITH HIV

EMPOWERING YOU TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU WANT

Learning to navigate life with HIV can take time but it shouldn’t stop you from living the life you want. Thanks to effective treatment, you can look forward to a long, happy, and healthy life with HIV.1

This site has been created in collaboration with a team of people living with HIV to help you navigate every stage of your journey. Each individual brings a new perspective that can help to build a greater understanding of what it means to live well with HIV. Everything they share is based on their personal experiences and aims to offer guidance and support to help you thrive with HIV.
