Life Expectancies of People Living With HIV in Virginia, Advancements in HIV Therapy Examined

August 24, 2009

As part of a sizeable package of stories, the Richmond Times-Dispatch examined how highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has improved the life expectancies of people living with HIV/AIDS. According to the Times-Dispatch, "The shift to longer life expectancies for people with HIV has created all sorts of new issues and dilemmas. People with well-controlled HIV infection are able to get organ transplants whereas years ago such a thing would not have been considered. They are also living long enough to develop chronic conditions of aging, such as heart disease, increasing the need for health-care providers to expand what they know about HIV care." The article also profiles the lives of several local residents who take HAART medications (Smith, 8/23). The Times-Dispatch also published an HIV/AIDS timeline, a terms and definitions piece, and a Virginia facts and figures sidebar (8/23).
