About

Human Immunodeficiency Virus attacks the CD4 immune cells, which are the immune system cells. CD4 cells trigger the immune system to create antibodies in order to fight off infection. As HIV destroys the CD4 cells, the function of immune system is suppressed and the affected person is not able to defend infection. As HIV reduces the CD4 cells, in your body, the person is unable to defend from infection. The immunosuppressed patient develops illness, infection and ultimately, AIDS.

AIDS/HIV - Treatment

Treatment for AIDS

Treatment strategy for AIDS virus involves the following principles:

1. To have an effective drug that kills the HIV virus once it enters the body.

2. To create a vaccine that would prevent the disease.

3. To educate people world wide about the dangers of AIDS and how to prevent the HIV infection.

On these principles current treatment against AIDS aims at:

Anti-HIV (also called antiretroviral) medications are used to control the reproduction of the virus and to slow the progression of HIV-related disease.

Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) is the recommended treatment for HIV infection.

HAART combines three or more anti-HIV medications in a daily regimen.

Anti-HIV medications do not cure HIV infection and individuals taking these medications can still transmit HIV to others.

Since I was diagnosed positive I have never had the courage to approach a woman for sex as I will not have sex without disclosing my status and I don't think that any girl will agree to have sex with me protected or not, and that has been the worst part of living with this virus.

Hi, My father is a HIV patient and is getting treatment from Art Center at Jallandhar. We belong to Pathankot. A new Art Center has just started at Pathankot Civil Hospital. The doctor at Jallandhar has shifted ws to Pathankot Art center for treatment but we wanted to continue for treatment at Jallandhar. kindly suggest, can doctors at Jullandhar forcefully shift us to Pathankot for treatment or is it our choice for Art Center at another city, inspite of having Art Center at our own city?
