What will you do if your family member or loved one who is living with HIV is down with flu? For those who are not immune-compromised, going down with flu is nothing to be worry about since over-the-counter flu medications, proper meals and rest will do the trick. Needless to say, you will see your loved one running and about in no time. But for people living with HIV (PLHIV), flu, fever, runny nose and cough are not to be taken lightly.
