Is there a treatment available for HIV/AIDS. ?

Ø   There is no cure available for HIV/AIDS.

Ø   However, Anti Retroviral Therapy (ART) can prolong the life of a HIV positive person.

Ø   Once started, these drugs have not be taken life long.

Ø   These drugs are expensive and may have severe adverse reactions.

Ø   The ARTs need to be administered under supervision of doctors who are trained in HIV case management.

Ø   With the advent of ART HIV/AIDS has become a medically manageable problem.

ART is available in India. Information about availability/government programme on ART can be taken from the respective State AIDS Control Societies
