So, two things you want to know about HIV treatment and why it’s so important.
One, it helps your immune system stay healthy.
You’re going to feel good, you’re not going to get sick, and HIV won’t be able to reproduce itself in your body. Second important reason is that it prevents the spread of HIV to your sexual partners. So not only are you looking out for your own health but you’re also looking out for the health of others as well.
