He doesn't have to tell you about it. You can learn about it on your own. Read the information available on this site.
And as to the question of if he is going to die, the answer is yes...but mabe not from HIV and maybe not for a long while. HIV/AIDS is like a chronic disease (think diabetes) that has to have treatment everyday but it's not fatal

Just learn about it here on this site. Read about it. He probably doesn't want to talk about it with you cause he'll have to explain everything and you don't know anything. All you have to know is that you should act no differently. But let him know that if he EVER needs you you will be there for him.

You are not a bad friend. Sometimes its better just being there for your friend. I have been HIV+ for two years and I hardly dont talk about it but its good to know that I have people around that love me unconditionly.
