Great article, communication and awareness are the best weapons against this disease.

Good article, the decision to start anti-HIV treatment early—before CD4 counts decline in my opinion is a very precise, than to do things better. It may keep the immune system stronger and longer.

Hi there

Thank you for the great article regarding AIDS. One of the big positives is bringing this isssue into the public eye as much as possible.

Where I live young people still carry stigma and a lack of awareness about HIV and AIDS. Articles such as yours do challenge perceptions which I think is vital.

Thanks for the post.

the decision to start anti-HIV treatment early—before CD4 counts decline in my opinion is a very precise, than to do things better. but that a constraint is whether the socialization of means of treatment has been good in the community. In addition, also, the issue of costs should be considered, because many low-income people who want treatment to be constrained. As a result, people affected by HIV would not neglected and finally meet death. Very ironic is not it? Government should provide facilities and make policies that relieve the patient.
