When it comes to your HIV treatment and care, being your own champion can help you get closer to your treatment goals. Research also tells us that being involved in decisions about your treatment can have a positive effect on your health and wellbeing too.5
Remember, this is your life and you are in charge.
If there’s ever anything about your treatment that isn’t working for you, you don’t just have to put up with it. You can expect more! Speak to your doctor and together decide on a solution that has less impact on your health or life.
