If someone have full-blown HIV/AIDS. What are the effects of those medcal problems have that person's ability to work?
Response from Dr. Conway
It all depends on the presence of AIDS-associated symptoms or conditions. Although some may still be able to work, many people with full-blown AIDS are wasted and weak and therefore cannot work. Still others have an opportunistic infection that also affects the ability to work, until this infection is treated. The good news is with effective HAART, even people with full-blown AIDS can see a dramatic improvement in their condition that can even lead to them regaining their previous state of good health.
