In our clinic we follow many entertainers/patients who sing in choirs do well with their HIV treatment so that they can continue their singing activities. The long term prognosis for HIV+ persons with good access to health care including antiretroviral medications is generally good with much variation depending on individual circumstances that can be discussed with your HIV provider.
