Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting from India.

It would appear that you've had an excellent response to treatment.

For HIV+ persons who have stay adherent and in care and have access to medications, I'd expect essentially a normal life span.

Be well, BY

Is it possible for me and my daughter to be negative and if so how?
