Thank you for your service. I have read that the reason people do not develop HIV antibodies is that they already have a compromised immune system resulting from advanced AIDS or other diseases that impair the immune system. If this is true, is it correct to assume that normal healthy people will always develop HIV antibodies within the accepted "window period" time frame thus making the HIV antibody tests extremely accurate?

That would be my take on it. MH
