Re: cost of hiv

As with most Europeans, I am fortunate enough to live in a country where access to care and treatment is a universal right that is provided free of charge and bureaucracy to everyone (who is in the country legally) irrespective of their ability to pay - and where providing free treatment is seen as a cost-effective means of maintaining me as a healthy functional (and taxpaying) member of society.

In the UK, the annual average not-for-profit (except for the drugs companies) cost to the state of providing all aspects of that care, treatment and side-effect management, to the highest of international standards, for someone who is receiving antiretroviral treatment is assessed at UK£16,500/US$23,500.

For someone like myself the cost will be significantly less - and for some of the older hands, who have been through the wringer of monotherapy, far more toxic drugs and years of accumulating damage, the cost will be significantly more.

There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.
