Hello and thanks for your post.
HIV-1 is the most common type of HIV. These test results indicate that you are HIV positive and infected with the HIV-1 species.
You should now identify a good HIV care center (if at all possible); learn about your care options (TheBody.com is a great resource, so your off to a good start). Your healthcare provider will assess your health by clinical symptoms and laboratory tests. If the situation indicates, you might be offered specific treatments for HIV.
Be well, BY
