Response from Dr. Young
Back at ya, hello!
Yes, I think that this is a well conducted study from a very reputable group. This study corroborates what we have been saying on these pages for some time: that properly diagnosed (and hopefully not too late), with access to appropriate medications, that life expectancy for those living with HIV can be normal.
