PROTECTING AND PRESERVING THE QUALITY OF A LIFE INFECTED WITH HIV AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE THAT LIFE
There are two benefits brought by proper and continuous Antiretroviral medication. Tangible benefits such as increased CD4 count, undetectable viral load count and protection from opportunistic infections such as Tuberculosis and Pneumonia.
However there are intangible benefits that we sometimes overlook: the quality of living a life free from the burdens and consequences of a weak immune system.
The chance to continue investing in our passions and the things that feeds our soul. The chance to contribute to society by being a productive member of the community. The chance to be an example for other people who are going through the same journey. The chance to end the epidemic.
And the most important is the chance to protect and preserve the quality of a life infected with HIV (RICH or POOR) and the people who love that life.
The people who will help them gain their self worth. The people who will embrace them in times of difficult situations. The people who will hold their hand and say to them: ‘this treatment is not only for you, but for me as well so we can work together in helping you live a normal, happy and productive life.’ #Treatment4All
