If you have not been able to prevent infection with the help of post-exposure prophylaxis of HIV, within 72 hours from the moment of risky contact with the risk of infection, then you should contact an infectious disease doctor at the AIDS center for antiretroviral therapy.

Answer 2

If you have been diagnosed with HIV infection and confirmed , you should immediately contact and register with the regional AIDS center .

There you will see an infectious disease doctor ... You will be examined and performed two key tests for HIV viral load and immune status. The doctor will then prescribe treatment for you.

The most important thing to know about HIV treatment:

  • antiretroviral therapy (ART) may be the only HIV treatment proven in clinical trials

  • The result of treatment is that a person with HIV who receives antiretroviral therapy does not develop AIDS, the main cause of death for patients with HIV infection, and its life expectancy increases and becomes comparable to that of a person without HIV. That is, a young person with HIV infection who receives therapy (ART) is likely to live to old age, to have children and even grandchildren

  • HIV treatment should be started as early as possible, regardless of the results of laboratory tests for immune status and viral load. Ideally, you start treatment immediately after your HIV diagnosis is made

  • HIV treatment is prescribed for life, it cannot be a course, it must be taken constantly
