A healthy life with HIV

A HEALTHY LIFE WITH HIV

WITH THE RIGHT TREATMENT AND CARE, PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV CAN EXPECT TO LIVE A LONG, HEALTHY LIFE.1

As everybody living with HIV is different, what you need to do to achieve a healthy and full life will be unique to you. A healthy life with HIV starts with effective medication, an HIV care plan and a routine you’ll stick to. But more than this, it's about you living well and thriving. It’s about feeling good in your body and mind, being able to pursue your dreams and ambitions, and having a positive outlook for the future.

Being empowered in your care and looking after your physical and emotional health and can put you on the right path.

There was a time when HIV care focused solely on suppressing the virus. Thankfully, As HIV care has evolved, ensuring a good quality of life for people living with HIV is now just as important as effective treatment.

Having a long, healthy life should be achievable for most people living with HIV today.2 This may mean that your health and treatment needs change over time.
