Cincinnati Enquirer Looks at Effects of Antiretrovirals on the Lives of People With HIV, Larger Epidemic
June 8, 2009
The Cincinnati Enquirer examined how the "success stories" of people living longer with HIV -- such as that of former National Basketball Association player Earvin "Magic" Johnson -- can "illustrate how well anti-HIV medications work and might be part of the reason the epidemic still rages." The article discussed the efficacy of antiretrovirals, their side effects and the consequences of not taking the medications (O'Farrell , Cincinnati Enquirer, 6/5). The Enquirer also featured an overview of the history and science of HIV (O'Farrell , Cincinnati Enquirer, 6/5).
