Surviving and Thriving

Mortality rates peaked in 1995. Since that time, new drugs have opened up the possibility of living and even thriving with AIDS. Antiretroviral medications have been especially effective in lowering the presence of the virus to such a point that it is undetectable. Studies show that after six months with an undetectable status, an individual will not transmit HIV to others. However, testing is still extremely important for prevention and treatment, and people continue to die because they do not know that they have contracted the disease.
