Hiv is curable if caught in earlier stage of infection
Response from Dr. Young
Hello, HIV is not curable, whether caught early in infection or late; not in India or anywhere else.
People living with HIV without treatment almost always progress to AIDS and have decades of life expectancy erased. With current antiretroviral therapy (ART), life expectancy and quality of life can both be normal, and transmission of the virus to others prevented. It's an easier task, with fewer risks if treatment is started as soon as the diagnosis is confirmed- such are the recommendations of 23 countries and the World Health Organization.
