Response from Dr. Henry

Life span with HIV depends on many individual factors. If access to and adherence to effective HIV medication is good then the goal is to approach a normal life expectancy (many health issues impact life expectancy including cancer risk, smoking, heart disease risk, diabetes, hepatitic C, lifestyle, genetics, poverty) so a thorough indvidual assessment is recommended to properly answer that question.
