Your HIV

You can grow old with HIV. In fact, there is a very good chance that you will. More than half of those who are HIVhiv positive (or ‘seropositive’) give their current health a score of eight, nine or ten (out of a possible ten). One in ten gives their health a score of ‘unsatisfactory’. Nevertheless it is very important that you start using HIV medications at some point and that you take them on time every day: one to six pills, once or twice a day.

HIV is a virus that weakens your body’s natural defence (the immune system) against bacteria, viruses and other things that can cause disease. If the HIV virus (also known as the ‘AIDS virus’) damages your immune system, you will not be able to fight off certain diseases properly anymore. You might become ill from infections that a normal immune system would be able to handle.
